De Urbanisten Takes Part in Randers Flood Prevention Project

Danish architect firm C.F. Møller Landscape will lead an international team to design a new landscape along the Guden and Randers Fjord that protects the city of Randers from floods, the company said in its latest release.

In the next four month, the team – involving the Dutch firm De Urbanisten – is challenged to come up with a toolbox with new solutions that do not create new barriers to water and nature.

On the initial call from the Randers city, 13 teams responded of which two have now been selected to develop a tool box for solutions. The other team is led by urban development consultancy SLA and includes the Dutch engineering firm Witteveen+Bos.

The River Guden and Randers Fjord are really important to the city’s identity, and adaptation to climate change must not take us further away from the water. That would not be compatible with the vision of bringing the city to the water,” said Nels Markussen, the head of Nature and Environment of Randers Municipality.

During the period, the two teams will meet four times in Randers to look at the area, exchange ideas and give each other feedback.
