A Gradual Transformation of the Flemish/Belgian Coast

Vlaamse Baaien 2100 proposes a series of artificial islands in the North Sea along the Flemish/Belgian coast. The islands address coastal safety, nature, durability and development. Today the coast is susceptible to flooding from storms, due to its low elevation. As sea levels are projected to rise, due to global warming, the island will serve as a proactive strategy to prevent potential ecological and economic disaster. The islands are built up from existing banks in the North Sea, using the current morphology to determine their placement.
