project: Limes
2004 - 2006 / Commissioned by Hans Venhuizen I worked on several projects for Bureau Venhuizen: GEEST EN GROND, LIMES, MAKING OF MHEENPARK, WAPLA and DES BEEMSTERS. // Bureau Venhuizen is a project management and research bureau in the field of culture-based planning. It focuses on settlement and planning processes in spatial planning, taking culture as its point of departure. In this context, culture is broadly understood as cultural history, heritage, architecture and art, but also as the ensemble of contemporary culture among a region’s residents. Bureau Venhuizen investigates the possibilities for culture to play a role in the design of space. The bureau’s methodology is based on the re-use of existing landscape-related and cultural qualities and translating these into the contemporary context to achieve a marriage of past, present and future. In this manner, new (cultural) landscapes and urban areas in our constantly changing environment can develop an identity that is not contrived all of a sudden, but drawn from a more natural continuum.
