Urban Planning & Architecture

The Grounds


The site is an example of experimental circular architecture and spatial planning by space&matter architects. During the tour, the story and features of De Ceuvel will be explained by people working on the site daily. The former shipyard’s polluted grounds are purified by means of a special selection of plants that remove contaminants from the soil, developed by DELVA Landscape Architects.  The integrated clean tech systems designed by Metabolic allow for renewable electricity & heating, circular water- and wastewater management, nutrient recovery, and food production. In this way, the site has become a model for self-sufficient city spaces and it sets a new standard for sustainable urban development.
