Pieter Janszoon Saenredam Project
The city of Barendrecht, near Rotterdam in Holland, commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a landscape design for a new housing project called Molenvliet. Den Arend proposed to make use of a planned water reservoir. He reshaped it into a large rectangle - eighty by fifty meters. On one end he projected a thirty by thirty meter island - ten meters away from the three adjacent shores. On the island he planted a grid of sixteen by sixteen rows of willow trees. These are pollarded every three years.
