The spatial policy and numerous challenges and projects with regard to the Markermeer include measures concerning water quality, flood protection, ecological value, recreational value, and major future challenges related to urbanization and the associated infrastructure. Time to discuss Making Markermeer, and explore where and how projects either impede, support, or eliminate each other and how they are likely to develop over time.
Two zones will be addressed: Marker Wadden / Houtribdijk, containing the reinforcement of Houtribdijk and the development of the Marker Wadden, and the west side of Markermeer with the lee measures Hoornse Hop and dike reinforcement Hoorn/Edam.
The presentations show the results of research by design, carried out in the context of Atelier Making Projects. The debate focuses on the various tasks of ‘Making Markermeer’ and the entire implementation.
