We associate the term of Marker Wadden with the Wadden Sea, the number 1 of the Dutch nature. On the Wadden Islands, sandy beaches and dunes on the southwestern and northwestern sides protect the land from the waves. The lee side consists of mudflats and gullies.
The design for Marker Wadden is inspired on the Wadden Islands. Behind a stable sandy dune landscape we create a soft and muddy landscape. In the plan created ‘dunes’ provide shelter from the waves on the Markermeer. We connect two dune landscapes with a stone dam all along the western side where it will receive most attack from the waves. In this way, we create a sheltered part of the lake where we are able develop islands with wetlands.
