Adriaan Geuze describes an ecological project in the southern region of the Netherlands. After constructing a flexible dam to protect wildlife at the delta of a large river, the government asked him to create artificial sand dunes to cover the construction site. Feeling this was an unacceptable solution, Geuze decided to create plateaus of sand that elevate the road and provide views of the natural surroundings. He takes questions from the audience concerning birds at the airport and salty ocean water.
