On the western edge of the city of Utrecht the largest VINEX-location of The Netherlands, Leidsche Rijn, is under construction. Leidsche Rijn will eventually consist of 30.000 houses, industrial areas and numerous facilities.
The excursion will highlight the architecture in this district and the urban development of sub-plans. The different sub-plans are designed and filled in by a large number of national and international urban developers. Together they illustrate working on a 21st century city. Leidsche Rijn is a state of the art collection of modern housing but it’s also special because of the way the cultural landscape is incorporated in the lay-out of the new neighbourhoods.
During the tour we visit a selection of neighbourhoods, such as Langerak, Parkwijk, Terwijde and ‘t Zand and projects as the Black latex box by NL Architects, the Wall, Scherf 13 by SeArch Architects, Forum ‘t Zand by Venhoeven CS, Leidsche Rijn Park by West8 Landscape Architects and archeological site Castellum Hoge Woerd, and residences by Mecanoo, DAF Architects, Jaco de Visser, Atelier Pro, Oosterhuis Associates and MaccreanorLavington Architects.
