HOEVE DE WATERKANT,

Herk-de-Stad, Belgium

The Hoeve de Waterkant is cattle farm located in Herk-de-Stad which experiences frequent floods and waterlogging, making the farm related activities difficult to perform. The intervention, however, must be thought not only within the farm limits but also to the valley itself and supported by the following visions: Mixture of activities and functions Recreational destination in the rural environment Spatial and financial development

The current water system can not handle the large amounts of water at peak flows which causes the Schulens Meer to be flooded every year, resulting in damages to agriculture and natural systems. This issue is expected to increase due to climate changes and urbanization expansion which can potentially cause harm to the housing and businesses on the edge of the area. Thus arising the need to adjust the water system to the new conditions through an integrated vision between the stream valley and other dynamics like the natural welfare of the area and strengthen of its recreational potential.

General landscape intervention A. Water management During the course of time were carried out several interventions such as the construction of a water basin and channelled streams. Although the valley is naturally wet, currently unnatural actions occur in the system, providing floods in the summer and long-term water on land as a result of close siphons. At higher grounds the water will be retained and infiltrated on sandy soils, slowing down its flow, and discharged through the streams so that the peak storages disappear of the system. It is important as well to keep the clean water seepage flow separated from the contaminated water from the high agriculture fields. Tree plantation along the edge of the valley will allow retaining of water on the edge. Wet forests can absorb water on the edges and produce biomass. The streams at higher levels are also part of this planted network. The current water management is on the hand of both nature organizations and a single farmer, although the process Is not discussed between the parties. The proposal is to establish more networks, both organisational and physically. This cooperation will only benefit both parties by,for example, sharing knowledge.

B. Recreation and development In addition to contributing to the water retention and delayed discharge, the planting along the streams will enhance the environmental quality of the area while providing opportunities for recreational trails. New routes can be built along the edge of the valley, connecting farmers and entrepreneurs while providing beautiful views of the valley. Typical farms will get connected to a new recreational network, offering opportunities for farm sales and visibility and revitalization of this historic farms. These actions can also prevent the erosion of fertile agricultural land and mold a valuable green network for both people and wildlife. Until the 1930’s ian land use and strong landscape industrial park,

the valley was a recognizable landscape by the presence of agrarby the absence of forest and buildings. It displayed an open and character. By forest plantations and construction such as Van Halen this is partly lost.

Recreational trails and farm connectivity

The proposed models can be sorted into two main stratagies: COMPENSATE

“Ultimo grutto”

The main focus of this model is keeping on with current business strategy. The excess water is reduced through the incorporation of two locks and a pump. Other structures such as microdigesters provide energy and heat, while reducing costs. The digestate matter that remains may be used in fermentation and manure. This model also creates a grazed pasture landscape where cattle breeding is enabled.

“Verbredehoeve”

This model lessens the role of cattle and provides several additional revenues. The pastures are dug parallel to the Herk along the Houwersbeek, which creates a wet and dry zone and the excess water is collected by the water stream. Also, it provides helophyte cleaning of the nutrient-rich water. Cattle breeding, camping, selling meat and receiving groups also generate income.

10


ADAPT

“Natuurhoeve”

The nature farm operation model is based on ecological principles, in which the natural area is used for cattle breeding, whereby the production of meat and dairy goods is associated with the creation and conservation of habitats and biomass through food forests and wet forests. The water stream is released from the dike, distributing the water drainage over the whole valley. Aditional income can be generated from leasure activities such as campimg site or canoe and mountain bike rental.

“Waterhoeve”

The water-rich conditions of the area play a central role in this model. In ponds, plants such as duckweed, algae, water fern, reeds and bulrush are grown so that the nutrients are absorbed and do not require any fertilization. The cleaned water is then discharged into the nature reserve. The cultivated species are high in protein and grow fast and can be used to not only feed the animals but also as a raw material in the bio-based industry. Also fish breeding can be added to the model. 11

Climate adaptation design research “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.” http://landscapeinterventions.nl/news

A new urban ecology enhancing the “urban habitats” for birds, insects and vegetation. The usage of vegetation can collect particulate matter and improve air quality, as well as contaminated soil cleansing.

Rainwater is collected in winter and used in summer. The water can also be filtered by using vegetation. The sound of falling or flowing water can prevent noise and be used as a play element.

Fruit, vegetables and herbs grow in the public space and are directly delivered to the inhabitants of the city. Fresh food products are brought as close as it can be to the residents.

The residential quality of the public space is increased and global warming related issues are tackled by the creation of shady spots and interesting microclimates. Movement for slow traffic is optimized, improving the quality of life.

PARK TER WALLE,

Menen, Belgium

Collaboration: Wolf Compernolle

The design points to the transformation of the Park ter Walle into a city park with a natural and active character, through re-using the old structures existing in the landscape. Current and new functions are integrated in order to promote sports (football, krachtball and skate), leisure and multifunctional use. The different areas and sceneries are connected and integrated into a green framework and a path system that ensures the intended connectivity. In the central area, the sport fields create an open and long viewshed across the park. The park’s water regulation is emphasized by the presence of bioswales, to where the runoff is directed. The leftovers of the groundworks nearby will be used to create grassy slopes with siting elements and play opportunities.

This assignment consists on a design research on the circular development of the west side of the station area. The overall development strategy is related to issues such as energy, ecology, waste, water and mobility. Places like the port, Hof van Cartesius and the development of a Werkspoor Path for walkers and cyclists were identified catalysts for the area’s development.

The gathered data was decipted into five different land ocupation classes: Dense grove - areas with high density of trees. Sparse grove - areas in which land ocupation is characterized by trees, although glade occupation is present. Scrubland - areas characterized by shrub and soil covering vegetation with no significant tree vegetation. Agricultural areas - farming areas, with or without houses surrounding. Landscape evolution

Agglomerations - areas with high concentration of built structures.

This attachment is about a first interpretation of the landscape evolution through transformations in the territory occupation over the last 60 years. The information was mapped into five different categories of territory occupation: 1945|1960s|1977|1998|2012

The city of Porto pocesses a wide range of urban green areas and signifficant potential links between. It is essential to create a green network within the city and its surrounding locations, improving both the social and ecological dimentions.

Structuring vegetation identified

By having knowledge about spontaneous and cultivated vegetation in the portuguese context, the conception, planning and design of the greenway between Porto and Rio Tinto is driven by that knowledge. Therefore it is potentied a biodiverse connection and continuity.
