Rademacher de Vries Architects | Industrial Ecology
Rademacher de Vries is a design and research office that focuses on architecture, the city and the urban environment. Through building, teaching and exhibiting we seek to produce relevant spatial insights that are rooted in a self-conscious understanding of our discipline and culture. Our design methodology is characterized by a research driven approach that investigates projects through the perspective of different scales, cultural transformations and technological innovations. In close collaboration with our clients, we apply this design method to overcome disciplinary boundaries and actively engage in societal challenges.

Industrial Ecology

Client: ENCI Heidelberg

A public connection between an industrial site and a natural reserve emphasizes many of the pressing questions we face today. The design juxtaposes ongoing industrial processes (material depots, energy production, logistical flows) and ecological processes (succesion, growing biodiversity, hydrology, seasons) that are flourishing in reclaimed parts of the brownfield. The design consist of linear bands that intentionally puts these two traditionally antagonistic land uses in close proximity to represent a movement towards a closer union between man and nature.
After the park opens to the public, a visitors will never visit the same park, as it the bands keep changing according to the rhythms of both ecology and industry.
