a model of eco-neighbourhood
The EVA-Lanxmeer eco-neighbourhood is built on the outskirts of the town of Culemborg, in the centre of the Netherlands. It offers its 1,000 residents a richer and more peaceful social life, whilst reducing their environmental footprint. This laboratory of urban ecology is exemplary in terms of water management, energy efficiency, considered architecture, soft transport modes, education, urban farming and the use of natural spaces. It shows that another type of urban living is possible.
