Sustainable aspects in the dynamic of the Dutch rural landscape

Abstract

Following the landscape definition in the European Landscape Convention in Florence (2000) and the etimology of the Dutch term landschap, appeared in the Early Middle Age, which defined the landscape as a piece of land in the mean of territory of region and also as the community inhabiting that region, this paper presents some sustainable aspects in the dynamic of the Dutch rural landscape.

Organized as a synergic ensamble of ethic, aesthetic and knowledge values, whose quality consists not only in the physical aspect, but in its evolutive law, its DNA., the Dutch rural landscape appears as a consequence of some interventions respecting sustainable principles, following a certain attitude of continuance, presented in some projects as case studies from Urk, De Rijp, Beemster.
