The historical landscape of Capelle aan den IJssel, the polder, provides a model for environmentally sustainable water management. The tabula-rasa development of the 1960’s ignored this characteristic landscape and established an environment of monotypological, socially and ecologically unsustainable development.

Polder Salad reinstates the polder structure, bringing water into a network of intimate streets defining human-scale urban blocks which accommodate a variety of adaptable dwelling typologies.
