Water Cathedral photo 1


Because of the threat of global warming, the Dutch government made plans for flood areas in the surrounding wetlands beside the Nederrijn river (Netherlands). Open plains turn into green willow tree fields and marshes. The horizon moved up from grass level to tree level. The Water Cathedral is not only a spot for meditation but also a watchtower where visitors can enjoy the grand view of the river area. The form is based on a mangrove. It reflects itself in the water and completes the movement of the elements.
