By initiative and invitation of Dutch government and Netherlands Research and Spatial Agency, this design studio with eight designers and water planners was founded for one year.

The participants are: Bart Bomas, Luki Budiarto, Duzan Doepel, Dieke van Ewijk, Jan de Graaf, Wouter van der Heijde, Cleo Lenger, Arjan Nienhuis, Olga Trancikova.

The goal of the Design studio: using the motto of “To the sea !”, design some innovative concepts & visions for the North Sea and the Dutch coastline for coming 200 years. Keep in mind population and economy, increasing mobility and demands on space, experience-oriented society, new sources of energy and adaptation to climate change.
The members of the studio opted for a new position with regards to the Dutch delta: “Deltafication" and Building with Nature. The sea and the natural forces were the guiding principle and inspiration. The results are ideas for future: designs on the sea, from coastline reduction in the past toward coastline extension.
