FoAM - Amsterdam

Founded in 2002, FoAM Lab in Amsterdam works at the intersection between art, technology and ecology. The studio is project-based and its methodologies have been gradually shifting towards fieldwork since 2010. The studio includes 4 gardens in Amsterdam, 3 of which are public: the edible garden at Jan Mayenplein since 2008 focusses on native edible herbaceous plants, de Tuin van Jan is a small public park we designed with teams of local residents lead by 5 experts also at Jan Mayenplein since 2013 and finally MidWest Experimental Station at Cabralstraat 1 id an urban orchard which serves as a hub for citizen science and artistic experimentation with a focus on climate adaptation and urban ecology.
