Brabantstad is classified as the second biggest urban network of the Netherlands. Den Bosch is a middle-sized Dutch town of Brabant strategically located along the north-south European axis of the A2 connecting Amsterdam to Geneva. When the network city and the local historical landscape overlap but do not interact, what is a suitable design to link these two entities? The project materializes a simultaneity of episodes on the chosen site to generate a strategically active (sub)urban place. The strategy focuses on the development of a centre for metropolitan agriculture, both in the form of a building and in a program for landscape use. Memory of the past and needs of present time act together to convert a left over area, a blurred urban space, into a territorial interference that generates a multi-scalar landlink.
