We address present and future challenges, such as climate change, the human perception of landscape, water management, urbanisation and energy transition, through landscape design. Our specific competence is to deal with the various scales of complex and dynamic landscape systems and to propose inspiring and meaningful solutions.
NRGlab is the laboratory on energy landscapes initiated by Sven Stremke and Renée de Waal. This website is our online platform where we collect knowledge, share experiences and bring together people who work on the subject of Sustainable Energy Landscapes. Last but not least the NRGlab should help forming coalitions for future research, design and teaching projects on energy landscapes. The ‘Landscape Machine – Design Laboratory’ was founded in 2012 at the Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands by landscape architect Paul Roncken. It is the result of continuous student interest in designing and conceptualizing living landscapes with productive qualities. Products range from classical agrarian products to new energy harvesting and pollution solutions.
