Freek van Riet presents his graduation project Hoogtij . Archiprix Netherlands Rotterdam Academy of Architecture (urban design) The graduation plan presents a powerful long-term vision of the urbanization challenge of the Netherlands for the 21st century. Central to the planning are the climate effects, especially the rising sea level. The designer rightly states that this must be anticipated proactively. To this end, he develops four strategies: attack, defend, withdraw and connect. He then knows how to cleverly link this to what needs to be done in the Netherlands. They are stimulating proposals that put the various problems of sea level rise on the agenda and the solutions developed are relevant and well elaborated on the high scale level.
