Who makes the City? is the publication accompanying the exhibition Making Almere. Its tiny size betrays that it is actually the ‘hardcopy version’ of the UAR app (see page 26) that was developed to give information on architectural and urban projects for Almere. So does the booklet, which also contains walking and cycling routes for any interested visitor to Almere.
