Tuindorp Oostzaan was the first real garden village in Amsterdam, intended to offer working-class families light, air and space and a decent accommodation. Each family has its own front door and a garden at the front and back. Located near the shipyards, but far from the city centre. The village grew and the world changed. The Vegabuurt was added and in the 1950s Tutti-Fruttidorp and Tuindorp Oostzaan-West. New residents moved to Noord, thousands of people worked on the yards. Now heavy industry has disappeared, North is trending and the houses are popular with young city dwellers. ‘Polder VIII’ covers 30 years of work by Raimond Wouda, in combination with the use of photographs from institutional and personal archives from inhabitants of Tuindorp Oostzaan.
