Jeroen van Westen and Henk Volkers show the true nature of modern landscape in a playful manner
In times of heavy rains this landscape functions as a container for water to prevent flooding of areas down the river.

Until recently these containers were designed as nostalgic 19th century landscapes.

In the case of Van Westen and Volkers there is no doubt of the function of the landscape: it stores water.

From the mainroad between Almelo and Wierden you can see with your own eyes the quantity of the water which is stored.

In collaboration with landscape designer Henk Volkers the artist Jeroen van Westen has made a joyful image. Simple and super efficient.
