A proposal to gain 600.000 m2 of land near the Dutch coast recently came from the CDA (Dutch Christian-Democratic political party). The idea is to create a tulip-shaped island that will provide agricultural space, clean energy, a new national airport and protect the current coastline all at once. The proposal must be seen as a teaser to market the idea of creating such an island. However it is not entirely unthinkable that it may become realized; Dutch contractors already built a Palm-shaped island located off the Deira coast of Dubai.

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.Join us!
