Nederland nu als Ontwerp

This study is part of a large project, showing a distant future through the near future of its design stage. As the aimed year - 2050 - is distant, a serious answer therefore is ironic.

Our proposal extrapolates an - in advanced applications - already present future. Agriculture without soil in the artificial climate of closed sheds on several stories, leaving arable land free for tulips and timber production. The airport is the first of a series of mayor peripheral developments, offices, hightech industries and - as polution and noise reduction become efficient - housing and recreation. The grid of the 17th century polders dominate the landscape, however the lakes will reappear in new shapes.
