In recent months, Landpark Assisië in Biezenmortel has been the focus of three special events.
It started in October with the commissioning of the new solar park and the construction of the first 8 energy-neutral homes. During the occasion, MTD landscape architects presented the other developments that will take place in the near future as part of the master plan. Landpark Assisië will be transformed in the coming years from a health care institution to an integrated location for living, working, recreation, nature, landscape and care.
Subsequently, on 22 November 2019, the Working Conference of the Delta Metropolis Association was held at Landpark Assisië. With the Working Conference, which had the theme "landscape as a business condition", the Landpark was presented as one of the future urban regional parks of Tilburg, which will be part of Landscape Park Pauwels. The park plays an important role in the quality of Tilburg's business climate, and in that sense it forms an important economic carrier of the region. There were many interesting speakers, including Merten Nefs, Eric Luiten, David van Zelm van Eldik, Paul Roncken, Theo Baart, Paul van Hoesel and Frank van Mil on behalf of the municipality of Tilburg and Frank van den Eijnden on behalf of Van Gogh National Park. MTD opened the conference with an explanation of the Master Plan and Implementation Program for the Landpark.
November 27, 2019 saw the kick-off of "Common Ground" at Landpark Assisië. Under the direction of Studio Assisië / Saskia van de Wiel, 6 artists presented the first ideas for the application of art to the Landpark. A pre-announcement of the event, which will take place here during the Landscape Triennial in September 2020; art and landscape will then come together at this location.
In December this year, two important parts of the Masterplan Landpark Assisië will be realized by MTD landscape architects. Initially, this is the construction of the Natural Park. The nature park focuses on nature development in combination with water management. It provides space for art in the landscape and was created within a collaboration of Landpark Assisië with Waterschap de Dommel and Brabants Landschap. The Water Board contributes 50% to the realization costs of the project, from the DHZ fund (Delta Plan Hoge Zandgronden).
In addition to the design of the master plan and the elaboration of the many design plans, MTD landscape architects also leads the implementation preparation, tendering and supervision of the implementation of the plans.
