CITIES - sculptures and land art

H. I. Ambacht

The town of Hendrik Ido Ambacht (H. I. Ambacht) is expanding up to the boundary of the town of Zwijndrecht. There on the Zwijndrecht side the sculptor's Walburg Project had been situated since 1972. Since the two towns have planned mutual green areas. A large water basin has been planned at that location, and after some negotiations with the public and the sculptor, he was asked to make a proposal for land art this area.

The cross shaped island, x-ing, literally marks the spot and will form a pedestrian connection from the Vinex housing area and the town of Zwijndrecht. The other line will remain disconnected from the shores. The two crossing paths (tiendwegen) will be lined with rows of alder trees. Here you see the old technique of weaving willow branches as a protective edge against erosion.
