Antwerp, Belgium

A new floodwall wall along the river Scheldt is integrated in a linear park. Three large openings, located on the footprint of historic canals, connect the city to its river. Their walls become the support for a monument for the Second World War, merging the remembrance of the victims with the memory of the city.
