Art installation for a time of climate change: Deltawerk //

On September 27th 2018, the largest artwork of RAAAF | Atelier de Lyon so far openend: Deltawerk //.

A huge wave basin in the National Monument Waterloopbos served as a test location for the Delta Works. With the aim of creating an indestructible delta, engineers experimented with, among other things, meters high tsunami waves. We have excavated and sawed open this colossal 250-meter-long monument of the Dutch struggle against water.
