Nijmegen Peninsula, The Netherlands

nijmegen_flood_water_river

Baca Architects has seen off an international cast of established firms to secure a place in the final stage to design a new peninsula in Holland. The three selected practices include: Baca Architects (London), Mecanoo (Delft) Kuipercompagnons (Rotterdam). Runners up included West 8, Neutelings and 24HR Architecture. One or possibly all three practices are to be selected by the end of the year.

Baca’s proposal for a ’Retreat’ combines water recreation, river ecology, flood resilient development and sustainable infrastructure to create a self-sufficient ‘eco-leisure’ destination. It will be an exemplar, integrated solution and showcase for international architectural and technical innovation.
