Description

Text by Joost Glissenaar: 'The polder is the result of territorial creation dynamics triggered by economic initiatives of farm exploitations since the Middle Age. Is it possible to integrate the polder as part of the city?' Connected to the van Harinxmakanaal and the network of existing ditches a structure of water is created, with a central water square, short stay harbour for boats, floating swimming pool, etc. Traces of the existing dike will be visible on three points. The dike is connected to a new main road which circulates around the project site. Housing, public spaces and neighbourhood facilities are located in between water system and main road. The housing is elaborated with a pre-manufactured system.
