Overtreders W has designed The Voice of Urban Nature in Almere, Netherlands.

This project was designed for the municipalities of Almere and Amsterdam for the Floriade Expo 2022 and is a small building intended to have a large impact on the future of the building industry.

Built from 100% biobased, locally sourced materials and intertwined with nature, The Voice of Urban Nature pavilion exhibits the voices of local urban nature, illustrating how people and nature can unite and reinforce one another.

The primary construction applies striking black-coated timber modules filled with a pink hemp-lime, demonstrating how bio-based construction can close local cycles and strengthen both local ecosystems and the regional economy.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
