Toelichting (Engels) The unique Western peat meadow landscape is still for a large part a medieval landscape. Due to the draining system of this landscape the peat gets exposed to oxygen and the soil subsides. There are high consequences of this subsidence. The water management becomes complicated and expensive; there are high costs on reparations and building new infrastructure and because of oxidation emissions of CO2. Changing the land-use is not the solution since the agriculture defines the landscape; another land-use will make the unique cultural landscape disappear. The water level defines the rate of soil subsidence. Agriculture with a high water level will slow down the rate of the soil subsidence and give the agriculture and it’s unique landscape a future. This causes for a research by design on a sustainable form of agriculture for the Krimpenerwaard. The region de Krimpenerwaard serves as an suitable case for research by design on a sustainable form of agriculture since it’s a agricultural area that is vulnerable to soil subsidence. The current spatial development in this area doesn’t provide a sustainable solution to counter the subsidence. It is focused mainly on nature development combined with a high water level. This MSc thesis offers a sustainable and integral alternative for the current mono functional spatial development in de Krimpenerwaard.
