The design of a changing landscape for the island of Dordrecht in the Rhine Meuse Delta of Holland
This Landscape Architecture Studio investigated future adaptations of the urbanized low-land region of Dordrecht in Holland. Whenever water management and land use are challenged by growing climate change, landscape architecture plays a vital role in the definition of environments of a new kind. Students worked on large scale landscape design in terms of topology and regeneration using advanced tools of modeling and visualizing. They investigated a range of possible solutions for the Island of Dordrecht, addressing the multiple threats faced by the city, and developing new relations between the city and the National Park De Biesbosch.
