Recently LINT worked together with Paridon de Groot on a strategy for a sustainable future of Onderdendam to realize energy transition and to repair earthquake damage. National Broadcast Foundation NOS made a nice item about the proposals for this beautiful village.
LINT wins the competition to transform Park ter Walle into a citypark with a natural, monumental and active character. Old structures in the landscape will be reused and accentuated. Valuable remnants of the past are the Geluwebeek, the fortifications and the height differences, that are part of the historical stream valley. Current and new functions will be integrated in the park to promote sports and play and increase multifunctional use. The new park varies in quiet and lively areas reflecting a parklike and active atmosphere. The different parts and sceneries are well integrated and connected by a green framework and pathsystem to ensure the unity of the park. LINT explicitly chooses to establish the park in different small steps to allow the park to grow into a lively park and a distinguishable green public space in Menen. A new pathsystem will improve the entrances to the park and increase the number of walking routes within the park.
The International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) awarded LINT the IFLA Young Professional Award for the project Sprenckpark. The jury report:
The jury considered ‘Sprenckpark’ outstanding because of the translation of a concept into practice. Despite the lack of budget, the landscape architects managed to get the local community involved and by rethinking the traditional ‘park’ concept, they managed actually to create a new community space. The aspect of involvement and urban agriculture are hot topics these days, but we are more than happy to see them in practice and to notice them this time among the constructed projects.
There is an interview with LINT in the new edition of the magazine Stad+groen.
LINT has printed a 3d model as part of the Challenge Landscape 2070 of the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure. The model's size is 2x2 meter and shows the project Waterring Zuid-Holland. The Waterring is a proposal for a new water connection around the lowest polders and will create more flexibility and spatial quality in the water system.
LINT has made a model for the OPG area Utrecht. The model is part of an exposition in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht in which innovative projects from Utrecht are shown.
LINT has done a proposal for dike reinforcement along the Waaldijk in Nijmegen as part of a design atelier organised by Waterschap Rivierenland, Municipality of Nijmegen and the O team. The proposal contains a strategy in which the zone around the dike is transformed into a dike park which contains light forms of urbanization. The offices Delva/Dingeman Deijs and Urbanisten also presented their designs.
LINT presented the design for the OPG area at the Landschapscafe Utrecht as an example of climate proof design. LINT also organized a design workshop about the OPG area.
LINT is part of the Architecture Biennale Venice with the project UN Habitat Mexico City, which was presented at the University of Venice.
