Fort Werk aan 't Spoel Holland, Culemborg Landscape Design, New Dutch Waterline
Fort Werk aan 't Spoel, The Netherlands : New Dutch Waterline
Landscape project, Lek dike - Culemborg - design by Rietveld Landscape | Atelier de Lyon
Rietveld Landscape was founded by landscape architect Ronald Rietveld after he won the Prix de Rome Architecture 2006. In 2003 he graduated cum laude from the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture.
From its start economist and philosopher Erik Rietveld (Harvard University) and Atelier de Lyon have been part of the studio’s core team. Moreover, according to the specific needs of each project Rietveld Landscape collaborates with external designers and specialists.
Many of our projects deal with large current developments such as floods, vacancy, extreme rainfall and drought, ecology and sustainability, infrastructure, and the changing meaning of public space. Our interventions add a new and understandable layer to the site’s specific history. The relevant scale of the project may vary from a square to a whole region.
Our design and research can be characterized by its specific approach. Sharp analyses followed by clear concepts form the basis of our strategic and sometimes radical interventions. These focus and use the forces of important existing developments and processes to generate a new context and meaning for qualities present. This design method creates new opportunities for landscape, architecture, urban design, the public domain, ecology, recreation, and economic activity.
Rietveld Landscape was curator of the Dutch pavilion for the 12th Venice Architecture Biennale. The office won both Dutch Design Awards in the category Architecture: best interior and best exterior 2011 as well as the Rotterdam Design Prize.

Fort Hoofddorp - 5 Sep 2012
Dutch architect Serge Schoemaker has revealed his design for the redevelopment of Fort near Hoofddorp (1907). With a redevelopment of the historical site local authorities aspire to make the world heritage monument more known and open to the public. Schoemaker's conversion design transforms the 8'100 m2 large fort island into an open air theater and restauran

Dutch Landscape Design
This project lays bare two secrets of the New Dutch Waterline (NDW), a military line of defence in use from 1815 until 1940 protecting the cities of Muiden, Utrecht, Vreeswijk and Gorinchem by means of intentional flooding.
A seemingly indestructible bunker with monumental status is sliced open. The design thereby opens up the minuscule interior of one of NDW’s 700 bunkers, the insides of which are normally cut off from view completely. In addition, a long wooden boardwalk cuts through the extremely heavy construction. It leads visitors to a flooded area and to the footpaths of the adjacent natural reserve.
