Flux has made a design for the school playground of the Odyssee elementary school. A continuous playful route with all kinds of play activities ensures a clear distribution of the program and at the same time connects all the different places of the school playground.
Flux was part of team Heijmans for the design of Boerhaeve Schalkwijk. Click here to see the submission. The competition was in collaboration with Korth Tielens, Marcel Lok_Architect (ML_A), Bets en Oudendorp. Images by Studio Zwartlicht.
Flux and marco.broekman are selected to develop a vision on the natural living environment (Natuurlijke Leefomgeving) for Hart van Holland, a regional collaboration of ten municipalities surrounding the city of Leiden. Together with the municipality of Zoeterwoude we will organize a series of ateliers this year. For these sessions a diverse group of stakeholders will be invited to work on topics related to climate adaptation, water quality, biodiversity, soil subsidence and attractive landscapes with strong green-blue structures. Besides, we will interact with four parallel research processes in Hart van Holland this year: energy transition, urbanization, mobility and digital information services.
For a design of a collective inner garden, the Flux team visited the Vandersanden factory, where we experimented and tested with a pattern of clinker bricks. Afterwards, the team received a tour through the factory to gain insight into the production process.
From the projects Oostenburg Amsterdam and NPD strook Utrecht, large scale models can be seen on Provada. Flux was part of the winning team for both tenders and is now working on the development of the plans.Team Oostenburg is formed by Flux, Vorm, OZ architects and Workshop architects. Flux collaborates with the municipality of Utrecht for the design of the public space of NPD. The buildings and inner gardens are being designed in collaboration with AM, NL Architects, Paul de Ruiter architects and Studioninedots. Models by Studio KU+.
Team Heijmans consisting of Studioninedots and Flux landscape architecture is one of the winners of the tender in Leidsche Rijn Center for plot H2 / H3. The plan is characterized by innovative integration of greenery in the facades and a collective greenhouse as the entrance area from the street. Images by Studio Prins.
Gerwin de Vries from Flux gave a lecture at the Greenweek in the Knoopkazerne. The topic of the lecture was the city as an ecosystem, illustrated with projects of Flux. Other lectures were about Space and Matter, Hof van Cartesius, Blue City and Kracht van Overvecht. Organized by AORTA
Flux and Charlotte Ernst presented the first results of their study on the Graadt van Roggenweg in Utrecht. The study will focus on neighboring companies, the relation between private and public space and the possibilities to improve the quality of public space during the multiple phases in the development of the station area.
The first phase of the ‘Hof van Cartesius’ project, a joint concept and initiative of Charlotte Ernst and Flux is in progress. All sorts of parties, led by Bianca and Charlotte Ernst, are working very hard to make the circular development of green workplaces possible, such as the Overvecht Vastgoed and Rhaw for architecture.
