STRATEGIC VISION FOR THE KRIMPENERWAARD, A 170 KM2 AGRICULTURAL REGION AT THE EDGE OF ROTTERDAM

The Krimpenerwaard (municipalities of Krimpen aan den IJssel and Krimpenerwaard) is a 170 km2 region that houses over 80.000 inhabitants and is dominated by its typical agricultural landscape. As part of an initiative by Riek Bakker, we developed a strategic vision for this region in collaboration with H+N+S landscape architects. This vision addresses a wide variety of issues such as water safety, soil subsidence, population shrinkage, energy transition and the region’s declining economy. Supported by a comprehensive participation process, solutions were developed for each of the issues. Furthermore, the interrelations between different solutions have been thoroughly explored in order to develop an integral vision.
