Climate adaption

We see the major design challenges of today as an opportunity to make the Netherlands more beautiful

Adjusting the planning of the Netherlands for the consequences of climate change has a profound impact on the landscape. We take advantage of these transformations to strengthen the existing quality of a landscape and to add new ones to it. We turn the challenges into success by tackling them with partners on a regional level and in combination with other challenges. In this way the sum total becomes more than the separate parts. We discuss with those involved to arrive at acceptable design options with a positive prospect for the landscape and its users.

Southwestern Delta Regional Agenda

Land and water meet in the Southwestern Delta (South-West Netherlands and North-West Belgium). The rising sea level, increased drought and rising temperature of the air and the water have consequences for the region. Strootman Landschapsarchitecten, OAK consultants and WSP have joined together with residents, entrepreneurs, social parties and local government bodies to produce a Regional Agenda for the coming thirty years.

Climate adaptation for the Wadden Sea coast in the 21st century

The Programme for a Rich Wadden Sea (PRW) invited Strootman Landschapsarchitecten to draw up an adaptation strategy: a strategy for climate adaptation on the Wadden coast that sets priorities, inspires and looks forward towards an attractive, integral, climate-resistant future in the 21st century.
