In the historically industrial Noord of Amsterdam, the disused NDSM werf was invested by creative industries. Now it is in rapid transformation and the wilderness, both natural and man made, is rapidly erased by construction of a new neighbourhood for 200.000 future amsterdammers. Planning of the area is made long before, sometimes 20 years, the building actually starts. Even if needs of the city, people and technology change, the plan doesn’t. The Idealist Institute is investigating transformable planning through the “ombestemmingsplan” that requestion the current zoning plan. We propose citizen and creative intervention to explore the uses and actual needs in a community with the final goal to create an ideal village or neighbourhood.
