The Foundation Biotope City was set up in 2004 in Amsterdam.The  founding members and board are Helga Fassbinder (Chairperson), Harrie van Helmond (treasurer) and Hans Aarsman (secretary)

The Foundation
- recognizes the dramatic urbanization on earth of the 21st Century and the resulting ecological challenges.
- works on a vision of the City as a specific form of Nature, which embeds itself as much as possible in natural cycles.
- searches for examples of a new formal language and beauty that brings its vision to life and makes people experience it visually and emotionally.
- collects and discusses fragments of a new reflexive thinking in architecture and urbanism that aims a peaceful survival of the human race in its habitat City.

That is why the Foundation is editing a BIOTOPE CITY JOURNAL !
