Rijkere Dijken (‘Richer Dikes’) | research by DELVA Landscape Architects with Dingeman Deijs Architect

DELVA-Landscape-Architects---Richer-Dikes-Booklet

In the coming years, 99 dikes in the Netherlands have to be reinforced.  Besides their function to protect, these flood defences have an impact on the functioning of their surrounding area. That’s why we –as spatial designers-  asked ourselves if a dike can be more than just a monotone embankment. DELVA Landscape Architects and Dingeman Deijs Architect developed six new typologies for dikes in six different landscapes. We worked with experts in the field of engineering and technology.

Döderhultsviken | Oskarshamn Sweden | Mandaworks, Adept, Hosper Sweden and WSP

Doderhultsviken_3
Oskarshamn is a small harbor town on Sweden’s east coast with a population of 17,258 in 2010. It sits midway between the summer town of Västervik and the university and cultural city of Kalmar. Characterized by the port industries and businesses, the city relationship with the water has changed dramatically within the past 100 years as the natural bay, Döderhultsviken, has been transformed by the city’s harbor activities. After years of changes in the port industry , demands for larger areas and harbor depth has moved much of harbor industry out of the inner harbor and onto new quays further from the city center. With the goal of developing new visions for their inner harbor, Oskarshamn municipality invited 3 teams to develop proposals for city’s inner harbor.

Biomimicry offers enormous potential to transform our landscapes, buildings, products and systems. For every problem that we currently face – whether it is generating energy, finding clean water, designing out waste, manufacturing benign materials, or designing a Biomimicry Discovery Park there will be precedents within nature that we can study.[1]  We believe that our proposal has stayed true to this sentiment and produced a viable, beautify and functional project that ‘talks to’ the values espoused in Biomimicry.

STUDENT PROJECT | Edible Landscapes | Milkana Mladenova

The study explores the application of edible plants in modern cities, in order to help understand today’s trends shaping the urban environment. Edible Landscaping is referred to as the practice of incorporating food – producing plants in the landscape. Fruit and nut trees, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers and shrubs with berries can be combined to create an attractive design that produces fruits and vegetables for home consumption. It is an approach to food production where exotic ornamentals are replaced with edible or productive plants.
