The city of the future is integrated, adaptable, resilient, connected, inclusive towards nature and people. Today we presented our vision for the internationale Knoop XL in Eindhoven, in the frame of the Stad van de Toekomst (City of the Future), an important event for the future of the Netherlands, organized by BNA, Ministerie IenW, Municipalities of Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Eindhoven and TU Delft, where a community of designers, advisors and policy makers have been envisioning the future of our cities. 

This vision is the collective work of Urban Arcipelago, a team created in 2016 by Mauro Parravicini (architect, teacher, Mauroparravicini Architects), Marta Roy Torrecilla (architect, Kartonkraft), Francesco Garofalo (landscape architect, Openfabric) and Kai van Hasselt (urban strategist, Noha) including Marcel van Lieshout (mobility specialist, MoveMobility), Michel Visscher (civil engineer, Royal HaskoningDHV).

Today we presented our vision for a Nature Inclusive Building. Thanks to the initiative of the Municipality of The Hague, Afdeling Stedenbouw en Planologie, we had the chance to study the inclusion of birds, insects, plants, bats and even worms in the renovation of the Savornin Lohman building in The Hague, for the setting up of a point system to inspire the realization of nature and green inclusive buildings.

In a time of growing urban population there is a strong urge to contribute to biodiversity also within our buildings. As architects we can play a role, especially if we listen to ecologists, when we design green buildings, by avoiding to just limit our intervention to a green facade or a green roof. We have a great chance: the one to create a new biotope.
