ENDELK (Groningen for ‘finally’) – Middag-Humsterland case

2017

€10.000
ENDELK stands for energy, sustainability and landscape quality. In an Energy Innovation Lab, students, inhabitants, entrepreneurs and experts are to explore how Middag-Humsterland’s landscape qualities can be underpinned while at the same time producing the highest possible sustainable energy yield. The landscape is characterized by the numerous farmsteads that, as a result of scaling-up, have a visible and image-defining impact on the landscape. In preparation for the lab, the start-up phase will create an image analysis of the present situation of the farm buildings and summarize the current policy, planning framework and present work processes. This project is a collaboration between the Municipality of Zuidhoorn, Hanzenhogeschool Groningen and the Westerkwartier area cooperative and involves many local experts in the fields or architecture, energy, landscape and heritage. Relevant agricultural bodies, neighbouring municipalities, provincial and educational institutions will also participate in the workshops.

Resilient Weert

2017

€10.000
Weert city centre increasingly has to contend with vacancy, drought and heat stress. Resilient Weert is investigating how climate-adaptive interventions based on historico-cultural values can have a positive impact on a qualitative inner city. The research team made up of Personal Architecture, NOHNIK and architectural historian Lara Voerman are commissioned by the Municipality of Weert to tackle this research. The team intends to demonstrate how linking-up innovative future-oriented (climate) interventions with historico-cultural key values can generate extra spatial quality impulses. During the start-up phase the team will organize two round-table talks, involving both the municipality and relevant sounding-board groups, and chart historico-cultural values, climate challenges and related social issues.

Cultural heritage as a vehicle for an attractive climate-adaptive city

2017

€10.000
Rotterdam has a long history with water. Now heavier rainstorms have necessitated a well-thought out water plan and history highlights the importance of an integrated approach. Arconiko architects, Designlab 2902, Water Sensitive Rotterdam, urban-planning historian Hilde Sennema, Rotterdam Central District Association, Schieland and Krimpenerwaard Council, and the Municipality of Rotterdam are joining forces to develop this plan. They are exploring how Rotterdam Central District’s cultural heritage can be harnessed to realize an integrated approach that will benefit the urban quality as a whole. The start-up phase will see extensive research into the structural layers of the area’s cultural heritage and that of the wider environment, which will then be cross-linked to climate data. This will be fleshed out and presented to a wide range of experts in order to generate concrete design proposals.

The Island of Dordrecht: transformation of regional water defences into an adaptation landscape

2017

€10.000
Felixx and Unesco-IHE have been commissioned by the Municipality of Dordrecht to carry out research into the potential of harnessing secondary surge barriers as a cultural framework. The Island of Dordrecht forms the project area for a so-called innovative animated adaptive landscape. The team will look for a spatial development strategy for the framework, a (policy) tool box providing steering in an organic development process, and inspiring building blocks that can be fleshed-out into pilot projects. The start-up phase will see the involvement of pivotal parties in the trajectory, regional barriers inventoried, several comparative researches monitored in terms of water, heritage and sustainability, and two workshops organized. During the workshops a follow-up trajectory will be further developed and possible subsidiary projects pinpointed.

The inner perimeter canal as a climate-adaptive vehicle for the historical city centre

2017

€10.000
The team consisting of OKRA, Alterra, WUR, In Arcadia Foundation and Climate KIC maintain that the singel (old protective moat) - when seen in the context of innovative integral strategies for climate-adaption and heritage - is pre-eminently suited to form a support structure, linked up with other historico-cultural networks in the city. As final element for bringing back the water in the canals, the Catharijnesingel in Utrecht - along with the adjoining area with the vanished Mariabolwerk and the vanished transverse canal - form the case study for this project. The team is starting by making a catalogue of state-of-the-art European examples in the field of historico-cultural heritage related to the climate-adaptive city. The definition of the brief will then be given greater focus and relevant collaborative parties sought. Finally realization trajectories will be set up where the team seeks to link up with follow-ups to the Catharijnesingel implementation project.

Military heritage in transition – Fort Pannerden case

2017

€10.000
Following on from their earlier ‘Engergyline’, H+N+S Landscape Architects in collaboration with the cooperative Relocal and Ro& Ad architects are embarking on a concrete sustainability thrust within the New Dutch Waterline. In this regard Fort Pannerden, which in the coming years will be the subject of an energy intensive programme, is to serve as case study. The waterline is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which carries specific planning constraints for any potential spatial interventions. In collaboration with other interested parties, the above design firms are therefore exploring how the growing energy demand can be met in a sustainable way and in keeping with the fort’s immediate surroundings, so that any interventions will underpin the historico-cultural quality of the heritage. During the start-up phase several workshops and studies will work towards establishing a preliminary scheme for this case study, which is to be a model for the preservation of other forts within the waterline.
