With a great amount of sun and wind, the second day was a great day for measuring! Days like these are amazing for giving insights in sedimentation processes on the beach and with what speed they take place! To see results after two days already is fantastic, so now lets hope for even more wind! … Continue reading What a wind!
We can finally say that we have officially opened the installation! After a week of hard work we are now open to public. Combining art and science, we strive to make you aware of human influences on the dynamic dunescape of Terschelling as a prototype for other coastal areas. Since these areas are in grave … Continue reading It’s up!

Aeolis: Gap the Border aims to give insight into the principle of building with Nature. By using old fencing techniques, we investigate how to … Continue reading The magic of hessian
Coastal areas are in great danger due to massive sea-level rise. The continuous human interventions in these areas prevent the low lands from drowning. As part of the research program related to coastal defence, a group of MSc students from TU Delft have developed an architectural intervention as a prototype for these areas. The Wadden … Continue reading The Story
For the 6th year, students of the TUDelft participate in the Oerol Festival with an amazing project on Terschelling. This years topic is Aeolis: it derives from a really fancy greek concept to express the sand transportation due to wind power that creates dunes. If you're really interested: Aeolus (/iːˈoʊləs/; Ancient Greek: Αἴολος, Aiolos [a͜ɪ́olos], Modern Greek: [ˈe.o.los] ("quick-moving, … Continue reading What are we doing?
