SINGEL TRANSFORMATIE (Canal Transformation) 2001

Oosterheem’€™s main watercourse is a city canal, as straight as the former Plastocht but broader. It has a hard western side and a pastoral eastern flank. Numerous bridges have been planned which will prevent the canal from becoming a delimitation ‘€“ on the contrary, a feeling of openness and space is created.
Together the bridges help shape the transformation of the landscape ‘€“ from scenic creeks to underground water courses. Each bridge is a point enabling people to experience the water in different ways.
