Floriade 2022

April to October 2022

Holland’s once-in-a-decade World’s Fair of horticulture – World Expo Floriade – Amsterdam – Almere 2022

The world’s largest horticultural expo with exhibitions from more than 30 countries

Almere Floriade will be a grid of gardens on a 45ha square shaped peninsula.
Each block will be devoted to different plants, a plant library organized alphabetically.
The blocks are each devoted to a wide variety of different programs, from pavilions to homes, offices and even a university which will beorganized as a stacked botanical garden, a vertical eco-system in which each class room will have a different climate to grow certain plants.
Visitors will be able to stay in a jasmine hotel, swim in a lily pond and dine in a rose garden. The city will offer homes in orchards, offices with planted interiors and bamboo parks.
The Expo and new city centre will be a place that produces food and energy, a green, urban district demonstrating how plants, indeed nature itself ,enriches every aspect of our daily lives.
