Amsterdam Homemade is a spatial development model for a landscape supermarket. due to urbanization, the dutch polders, once the icon of our food production landscapes, have over the past centuries come to lie like parks in the Amsterdam metropolis. Amsterdam Homemade shows the potential of these green wedges for recreation and food production for the metropolis that today knows 170 different nationalities, food and culinary traditions.
