H+N+S Landscape architects / Plan Ooievaar

H+N+S Landscape architects was the winning agency in 1986 of the prestigious Eo Wijerscompetition with Plan Ooievaar (‘Plan Stork’). In this plan they presented a new way to deal with the layout of the river area, taking the water system and nature development as a base. Plan Ooievaar set the tone for a new generation of regional plans that determine today’s outline of the river area.

In this video, Lodewijk van Nieuwenhuijze of H+N+S is talking about two locations along the Waal river (Wamel and Ewijk), interventions that have been done and the relevance of the plan.
