This thesis reintroduces 't Ooghe. A mudflat and refinery design located in the North Sea at the height of Callantsoog (Noord Holland). An intervention that uses the military waste in sea to employ new touristic qualities.
Old brass ammo shells that are dumped in the North Sea are collected and refined in a new refinery design. This refining process forms the base for further development: it creates experiences, wellness functions, participation possibilities and landscape qualities. Over time 't Ooghe will grow and expand in functionality and gets even more interesting. 'T Ooghe 52 degrees is a respond to the Dutch coastal development. The projects formulates a way to cooperate and design in a collective space: the Dutch horizon in this case. It introduces a method that discharges the sea from polution and creates a new genius loci in front of the coast. This new architectural intervention is - in stead of land - sea based; the North Sea forms its foundation. In future perspective we might have to think more often from this direction. The Netherlands is bigger then we think, we have to think larger: no borders.
