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 be

organized 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.
