JONAS PAPENBORG (KARRES+BRANDS, NL)
The Seven New Netherlands
The Dutch have a heroic tradition of dredging, land reclamation and landscape building. More than half of the country is directly reclaimed from nature. This resulted in particular landscapes, such as land reclamation, sand dunes and delta works, but this rich tradition however also has its downside. Constantly working against nature leads to unforeseen problems and constant maintenance. With new challenges as climate change, rising sea levels and an energy transition ahead this situation seems untenable. To ease the tension between the current human-made landscape and nature we believe it is essential to move with nature instead of working against it.
In response to the challenge to move with nature karres+brands introduces "The Seven New Netherlands". The Seven New Netherlands suggest a new administrative division which, unlike the current sector policies, is based on the logic of the landscape. Founded on natural conditions and economic relations the Netherlands can be divided into seven new regions with an own character and its own strength.
