Once the Dutch became famous for their 'water-management'. Lately, their famous 'trick' turned into an obsession for mud, resulting into several experiments in and around Dubai. The so called innovation platform - an independent think-tank for innovation in the Netherlands - wants to spread Dutch fame (or mud) even further.
Arnouds post about the Tulip island reached a next level. In this movie the innovation platform presented their new ideas - referred to by bieslog as a new form of 'horizon pollution'.

Go here to watch the movie in English.

Thanks Stijn, It is an honor to be nominated.. My guess is the jury will select the Wiskundemeisjes; they are so sweet & girly & Dutch. I can not think of a better promotion for 'kies exact'.

Dutch Design follows the money. The money follows the water.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
