The Guardian, the Sleeper and the Dreamer

Three dikes named Guardian, Sleeper and Dreamer after there function in the landscape, are visually challenging the extreme tidal flow of the Loire-river and therefor emphasise a relation between the Dutch man-made landscape and it’s French opponent. Each dike contains a functional element for the campsite. The visitor can wake up under the shower of the Guardian (Dutch trans: the one who awakes). A bed is placed in the Sleeper. Finally one can sit and dream on the toilet in the Dreamer. Assignment by Estuaire Biennale, Nantes, France for autonomous design of a hide-out on an architecture campsite near the Loire river.
