Meanwhile, a meaningful bottom-up movement of self-builders with sustainable ambitions manifested itself in Buiksloterham. Circular Buiksloterham was born and with it dozens of houses, cooperative apartment buildings and an intensive collaboration between the water company, network managers and citizens, to create new forms of self-sufficiency. Like De Ceuvel, the ultimate example of a circular living lab. The NDSM wharf has developed into a public space for the continuing experiment, with workspaces and studios for artists and designers, like MX3D, a startup 3D printing a steel bridge for an Amsterdam canal.
The tour starts at Ferrotopia on the NDSM Wharf and will pass by MX3D, Palais de Cup at Circular Buiksloterham and De Ceuvel. It continues via de Van der Pekstraat to the Buikslotermeer Ferry.
