Bloemveiling Aalsmeer Flower Auction

'Landscape as Infrastructure' Seminar, Harvard GSD, Fall 2011

A study of the FloraHolland Auction Building and Distribution Center and the flows of its inputs and outputs. Domestic production is no longer able to provide for the demands of the markets, resulting in the need for the importation of cut flowers and potted plants from Ethiopia, Kenya, Israel, and Ecuador, among others, while exports are still primarily directed towards European countries.
