3205 Oosterschelde dikes, 2010

Zeeweringen project office for Water Management

Studio Makkink & Bey were asked to propose design strategies to harness and fortify the dikes, marrying functionality with a refined exterior into an elegant trimming. We came up with four different ways to strengthen the dikes and add a cultural purpose to the embankment at the same time. Each proposal opens the dikes up for the general public to solicit an automatic maintenance of the dike, a process that is assisted by local clubs who are involved to help guard and take care of the area.
