City island Veur Lent
Nijmegen NL –Nijmegen is the oldest city of the Netherlands, is currently jumping across the river Waal. At the same moment, it is necessary to create an extra riverbranch as a prerequisite for managing superfluous water in case of floods. Such a construction will result in an artificial island, offering new opportunities for a symbiosis between the city and the surrounding nature. KC designed a concept for this future city island named Veur Lent.
River park for city people
The plan envisions a very modest development of the area. Veur Lent should become a place that people on the banksides can cherish as a tantalizing focus for their dreams and desires. The dynamics of the river and the city on both sides should be tangible, but from a certain distance. The island itself should give room for experiencing nature and enjoying the water. In short, it is a river park with a natural appeal to the city’s people.
