De omgang van de Nederlanders met ‘hun’ water is voor buitenlanders fascinerend – zelfs voor een buitenlander als ik die al meer dan dertig jaar in Nederland woont. Kijk en luister naar mijn multimediatour ‘Water’ waarin ik samen met watergezant Henk Ovink, boer Nol Hooijmaijers en Florian Boer van de Urbanisten de rol van water in Nederland bespreek.
The relationship between the Netherlands and water is fascinating for foreigners – even for a foreigner like me who has been living in the Netherlands for more than thirty years. Watch and listen to my multimedia tour ‘Water’ in which I discuss the role of water in the Netherlands with water envoy Henk Ovink, farmer Nol Hooijmaijers and Florian Boer of De Urbanisten.
All three multimedia tours that I created on the occasion of being awarded the Maaskant Prize 2016 can be seen on www.tracyinnederland.nl
On November 4th, 2016, I was awarded the Maaskantprijs 2016 by Mayor of Rotterdam Aboutaleb. This is a bi-annual prize for a person that stimulates the debate on architecture, landscape and urban design by publications, teaching or commissioning. That day I also launched the multimedia project ‘Tracy in Nederland‘ (Tracy in the Netherlands) that I developed with multimediaproducer Submarine, artist Jan Rothuizen and podcastmakers De Kostgangers. Part of the project is the essay The Dark Side of Urban Success designed by Hamid Sallali.
