In relation to the ongoing climactic changes, the Netherlands is facing a potential flooding crisis. To stay ahead of this crisis, our rivers need more ‘room to expand’. At the town of Lent, this has resulted in a gully next to the river Waal. The morphological changes also create an island between the river and the gully. NL Urban Solutions, in cooperation with the British firm Baca Architects, has made a landscape design for this island. The island itself will be used as a recreational retreat, and the dike on the Lent bank will be shaped to visualize the different water levels in the gully.
