Volgerlanden/Walburg Project

The large area of water makes it possible to ice skate in the winter. This was the first ice of x-ing's first winter - January 2002.

Here the cross shaped island is still disconnected from the shore - a narrow foot bridge will make it possible to use the island to cross over to the other side of the reservoir where the second bridge is planned. Alder trees will line the edges of the island's two axes.

The municipalities of Zwijndrecht and Hendrik Ido Ambacht, the Netherlands commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a site specific sculptures for Zwijndrecht - Volgerlanden environmental sculpture - and for the new districts of Walburg and Volgerlanden.
