The Netherlands-Broek in Waterland
Behind this new building in the village Broek in Waterland lies the Volgermeerpolder. This polder was used as a dump site for large quantities of chemical waste, in the twentieth century. The waste included 30,000 barrels of pesticide residues, making the Volgermeer the most heavily contaminated area in Western Europe. To prevent contact and risks of waste spread, a concept ‘natural cap’ was developed. This consists of a gradual, functional replacement of a synthetic top layer construction by a natural layer of living, organic material. The project also included the construction of 59 ‘sawas’ (ponds) with the purpose to create wetlands, freely accessible for recreation. In the background Amsterdam is visible, the city responsible for this severe pollution. Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes

The Netherlands
The village Zuiderwoude is said to be the oldest village in the Waterland district, not far away from Amsterdam. About thousand years ago a settlement for farming pioneers in the peat marshes. Nowadays a place to be for those who can affort themselves a costly house in the countryside. On the left side in the distance the former island Marken is visible.
