Delta Plan X


Delta Plan X


is an immersive and collaborative initiative which frames and visualizes the future Netherlands of sea level rise
File under
Type of project
  • Systemic changes

it engages with the multiplicity of issues affecting the future of planning; thinking about them not merely as threats, but a new context and opportunities to a Dutch transformation. It envisions the further evolution of the lowlands, embracing the dune as a possible landscape typology for this transformative process. While climate crisis has created a common concern, as actors in planning and design, we feel the urge ethically and professionally to stimulate ideas into the ongoing debate. We approach this through an immersive visual way to establish a collaborative ground between expertise of knowledge institutes, the practical experience of (local) governments, market parties and the public. Delta Plan X imbues a new momentum into the making of the Netherlands. From long-term and pan-European perspectives, new contours for the Netherlands will be conceived. It also projects this large-scale vision locally on specific test sites.
