CITIES - sculptures and land art

Barendrecht
Pieter Janszoon Saenredam Project

The city of Barendrecht, near Rotterdam in Holland, commissioned me to make a landscape design for a new housing project called Molenvliet. I proposed to locate the land art project where a water reservoir had been projected. I altered the planned kidney-like shape and enlarged it forming a large rectangle measuring eighty by fifty meters. On one end I projected a thirty by thirty meter island - ten meters away from the three adjacent shores. On the island I planned a grid of sixteen by sixteen rows of willow trees. These are pollarded every three years. Because the subdivision of the former fields had been laid out in a more or less radial pattern, I decided to follow that; and the shape of the island and surrounding reservoir remained a trapezoidal one.
