After having made preliminary sketches and models Jean Leering and I agreed on one of my concepts and the chief government architect commissioned me to make a proposal for an earth work for the Test Circuit and Test center of the National Road and Transport Department in Lelystad a new town in the Flevopolder - in the old Zuiderzee (later IJsselmeer).
