A personal project in collaboration with Thijs de Zeeuw and still in progress.
City Seeds, for anyone willing to bend down to pick it up, the city is full of jewelry.
In amsterdam in the year 2020, just a little more different plant species were found than on Texel, one of our most beautiful national parks. That may be because more botany enthusiasts live in Amsterdam, but it could also just be that the Dutch capital is phytologically more diverse in nature than our largest Wadden Island.
The city is a landscape with a huge variety of weird nooks and crannies. There is an ideal niche in the city for every plant species. You could call these kinds of plants urbanophiles, lovers of the city. Plants that - like us - take advantage of the opportunities the city offers them. The opportunities we offer.
