Rijnvliet wins WLA Honour Award 2023

World Landscape Architecture selects Rijnvliet Edible Neighborhood as one of the world best landscape projects

We are proud to announce that Rijnvliet Edible Neighborhood wins the WLA Honour Award 2023 in the category Built - Urban Design!  

RIJNVLIET EDIBLE NEIGHBORHOOD

Rijnvliet Edible Neighborhood (REN) is a unique, co-created, new residential area in Utrecht, part of the Leidsche Rijn expansion that provides 1000 new ground-based dwellings. Initiated by local residents, the public space in the area is designed as an edible, educative landscape. The layout, based on the principles of food forestry, was developed in a participatory co-design procedure with residents, experts and the municipality. This has resulted in a public space design where all the greenery is edible for humans or animals.

The public space of Rijnvliet consists of a 15ha foodforest with more than a thousand (fruit)trees and 220 different (sub)species of edible plants, herbs & shrubs. The foodforest is built up with multiple layers of plants, forming an integrated ecosystem.

The plan for the layout of Rijnvliet, Edible Neighborhood was elaborated by  Æ Food Forestry Development, Felixx Landscape Architects & Planners and De Zwarte Hond.
