Sustainable Urban Engineering of Territory

1 Haarlem Riverfront MSc1 Q1

Future vision

The city is bound together by a network of boulevards, where the North-South connections follow a landscape or its edge and the West-East connections run across multiple sceneries. In the future the major part of development will take place on the eastern part of Haarlem as it is in urgent need for change and located closer to such economical anchors as Amsterdam and Schiphol airport. On the West side development should be limited in order to preserve the strip of urban landscape – valley between highway N208 and forest.

Masterplan

Form of the city can be improved by reinforcing the longitudinal connections – river Spaarne and roads tha connect Waarderpolder and Schalkwijk to the surroundings. Haarlem itself gives a good advice on North-South connections: Leidsevaart and Rijksstraatweg ar well functioning examples to learn from. Longitudinal connections are supported by lateral that bring the key spaces of the city together in one system. The most important potential connector is river Spaarne. Due to my interest in learning to use water as a tool in urbanism, Spaarne was selected as project area.

Waarderpolder

Actions:

  • strengthen longitudianl connections to the south
  • introduce residential function by multiplying houseboat harbours enclosed by miniature parks
  • connect the houseboat harbours by a route that leads to a new yacht harbour and the green wedge in the North
  • create spatial pockets on waterfront by placement of buildings

Spaarndamseweg

Actions:

  • extend the cut-off lateral street lines to Spaarndamseweg to strenthen spatial connections
  • create nodes of representation of important inland elements on waterfront – from public buildings to informal meeting places
  • ensure an uninterrupted riverfront promenade

Schalkwijkerweg

Actions:

  • enhance existing water system
  • condense the vague park
  • distribute sports fields evenly over the are – create a new urban front facing the river
  • use water system and sports fields as framework for building typology
  • introduce a new East-West connection for better integration of Schalkwijk within city
