This weekend, Jorrit Noordhuizen (NOHNIK architecture and landscapes) and Inge Kersten built a ‘Dune Carcass’ on the beach at Vlieland. They’ll leave it there for 4 months to test whether their design can effectively build dunes. The carcass is designed to help develop dunes in an urban environment. The design was tested  in a wind tunnel before, but this larger experiment will show whether it will also work under unpredictable circumstances.

Thanks to the Open Call for ‘Experiment’ of the Dutch Creative Industries Fund  and the local parties from Vlieland, the experiment could be executed. The ‘dune carcass’ has a total lenght of 50 meters and is located on the beach of Vlieland island next to the entrance to the Reddingbootpad, where wind and sea dynamics will interact with the structure.
