The consortium of LINT landscape architecture, marco.broekman and Workshop architecten has been selected for the BPD competition “Proeftuin Erasmusveld” in The Hague. Out of 64 submissions, four teams were selected for the next phase. This phase involves developing a vision on the first phase of the plan into a ‘sketch design’.
LINT has presented the results of the project Hoeve de Waterkant in Belgium. The project is part of a design research 'Pilot projects Productieve Landschappen' from de Vlaams Bouwmeester. Within this research program 5 different pilot projects have been executed in the field of food production, city and landscape. For Hoeve de Waterkant the team proposes a spatial strategy in which production, water and nature are strongly related. In collaboration with Ziegler Branderhorst and Alterra Wageningen.
LINT is part of Living Lab Utrecht Smart and healthy City, a design research on the circular development of the west side of the station area in Utrecht. The project is conducted in collaboration with Marco Broekman Urbanism and is commissioned by the municipality of Utrecht, Ministeries of Infrastructure and the Environment and Economic Affairs and the Provence of Utrecht. Other selected teams are Urbanisten and Nieuwe Gracht.
LINT presents a strategy for the transformation of the Werkspoorkwartier into a circular urban district within Utrecht. The transformation strategy is related to energy, ecology, waste, water and mobility. Eight sub-projects are identified that can work as a catalyst for the development of the area, these include the transformation of the port, the development of flexible workplaces in Hof van Cartesius and the development of a Werkspoor Path for walkers and cyclists. LINT is involved in several projects in the area, in collaboration with Charlotte Ernst Urban Strategy and among others with Overvecht Vastgoed and the municipality of Utrecht.
8th of october there will be a preview of the project Hof van Cartesius. Hof van Cartesius is a circular development of working spaces organized around a collective garden. Check out the program here:
LINT has started an international design project on the Fraser River, south of Vancouver in Canada. The Fraser river deals with spatial problems related to dike reinforcement, ecology and growing industrialization and urbanization. The project is done in collaboration with the University of British Colombia Vancouver and is partly financed by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
LINT is working on the design of a climate proof Merwede Area in Utrecht. For the entire Merwede Zone LINT envisions a combination of increasing urbanization and an innovative design of public space. Within the public space different themes are addressed, for example a new public space could provide a good climate adaptation, increasing ecological wealth, space for new mobility, food production and improved spatial quality. The assignment is commissioned by the Provence of Utrecht and results are expected December 2016.
