2,3,4,5,6,7 THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT MAKING ROOM-FOR-THERIVER: 34 PROJECTS NEAR NIJMEGEN TO LAY BACK THE EXISTING DIKE
350 METRES, AND MAKE WAY FOR A SECONDARY CHANNEL: HUGE
VOLUMES OF WATER ARE TRANSPORTED TO NORTH SEA. NIJMEGEN
ACQUIRED 3 NEW WATERFRONTS. MUNICIPALITY OF NIJMEGEN/HNS

Now of course, if you decide NOT to raise dikes and to give
more room to the river, you will have to deal with other land
uses and landowners. Focusing on spatial quality seemed
an apt way to communicate. To guide the 34 works, I chaired
a Q-team. The one example I will bring here is Lent near the
city of Nijmegen, where the project intended to lay back the
existing dike.
If you look carefully at the photographs, perhaps you
can detect why the municipality of Nijmegen was eager
to collaborate. They acquired three new high-potential
waterfronts by the operation. A lot of loving care also went
into the design of four new bridges, and to the public spaces,
such as a monumental quay. Thus although we might not
have solved the fundamental climate problems, we helped
our landscapes adapt, and transformed them into meaningful
public spaces.
This type of work has been our profession's core business
since the days of Olmsted and New York's Central Park. The
significance of public space can't be overestimated. It is the
social role of our discipline.

THE LANDSCAPE ACTIVIST:
WORKING BY ARCHI-PUNCTURE
Unlike the landscape practitioner busy sourcing contracts,
the landscape activist doesn't wait for a client; landscape
itself is the client. I have no better example of how the activist
works than my colleague Adriaan Geuze. In my country, the
semi-industrialization of dairy farming has meant that the cows
are in their stables all-year round, where they eat high-protein
fodder, and ammonia washers minimize the discharge of
methane. Lights are on until 11 at night - not to allow the cows to
read LA journals, but to fine-tune the periods when they are in
heat. The proponents claim this is the environmental optimum;
the opponents say it is inhumane to deny the animals the
grazing experience.
Adriaan Geuze took a stand. He claimed that grazing cows are
an essential element in the Dutch landscape, and therefore, in
strategic places near motorways, he placed huge cow models
in sight. These monumental statements stirred the political
discussion on these new agricultural practices.
Another eccentric Dutch LA you may have heard little
about, Louis Le Roy, was the champion of the non-designed
landscape, the informal landscape. He published his ideas
in his book, Switch On Nature, Switch Off Nature, and was
thereafter asked to organize the public space in two new city
extensions. He did so, together with the neighbourhood, using
building rubble to trigger both neighbourhood involvement and
spontaneous nature development.
