CITIES - sculptures and land art

H. I. Ambacht

The city of Hendrik Ido Ambacht near Rotterdam is constructing a new Vinex housing project in cooperation with neighboring Zwijndrecht. In 1971 Lucien den Arend designed his Walburg Project which was realized two years later.

The Vinex location, Volgerlanden, directly borders the Walburg project. The ditch, which used to separate the two cities - the Zwijndrecht Walburg housing area and the rural H. I. Ambacht fields with greenhouses - was planned to be enlarged and form a water reservoir to accommodate any surplus rainwater. At this stage the working group contacted Lucien den Arend and commissioned him to make a proposal for the total area, including his older landscape project.
