Testing ground Fieldlabs

Trial garden Testing was indispensable to obtain the required knowledge. The Waterloopkundig Laboratorium, a hydrological laboratory, was established in Noordoostpolder after WWII, in the pre-computer age. Because of its low-lying situation, water could be guided into and out of large-scale trial models without pumps. Concrete basins were used to research wave motion and build scale models of locks, harbors, and pieces of river.
