LOLA + deltavormgroep + piet oudolf: groot vijversburg park extension

rotterdam-based LOLA landscape architects, utrect-based firm deltavormgroep and dutch landscape architect piet oudolf have collaborated to create the winning proposal for the ‘groot vijversburg park extension’ in tytsjerk, netherlands. featuring a growing art collection, the romantic setting of the park is spreading beyond its boundaries with the hopes of creating a national destination. the design integrates a link to the historical grounds, a post-war recreational area and nature reserve. the program is interconnected with a ‘star maze’, featuring a forest and labyrinth. tall hedgerows divide the subspaces of meadows and smaller parks for varied functions.

a central gathering space presents six paths lined with textured shrubs to venture down. stretching into the surrounding grounds, the endpoint of each corridor terminates with a different experience, including a balcony overlooking the landscape, pier for canoers, a window and shed with supplies to venture into a nearby marsh. another zone containing hills and perennials may be flooded regularly and reached through a grid of small dikes. movement through the landscape is permeable and free allowing the individual to find and discover their way through the area without any imposed direction.
