Zwijndrecht - Volgerlanden/Walburg Project
A cross shaped island with Walburg Land art Project in the background. The five pollarded willows mark the boundary between Hendrik Ido Ambacht and Zwijndrecht. They were planned by Lucien den Arend in 1971. After the water surface is extended up to the foot of the meandering dike, behind them, of the Walburg project. They were remain standing on an elongated mound in the water and form a second island. But the maintenance was going to be form the main obstacle.
x-ing 2002 earth, asphalt, water, meandering dike, bronze, high-tension pylon, alder and pollard willows - 136x50x19m - Zwijndrecht, NL
So there was no choice but to take the willows out and let the body of water reach to the foot of the meander. This integrated the two projects into one greater whole.
