Sustainable reconstruction

Public space and infrastructure
Leiden University and the Municipality of Leiden are developing the Hartlijn: a green route through the Bio Science Park, especially for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport. This important feature will link the central areas of the park. The project is part of the sustainable development of public space and infrastructure.


The route will be attractive and recognisable. Nurse Arlien van der Kleijn won the idea competition with her design, ‘Officinalis’. The Hartlijn will consist of a flowery and recognisable belt of medicinal plants, marked in important places with knotted willows, and fringed by a strip of weathering steel.

For more information about the ideas submitted, see the Hartlijn Bio Science Park folder (Dutch version).
