The Cleverdam

02 November, 2017

To elevate all shoreline structures to a permanent maximum safety level is not realistic. Besides the technical and financial feasibility, it ruins landscapes, blocks the view on and access to the water. The accessibility of the shorelines represents an enormous economic value worldwide, especially in deltas, harbours and along the waterfronts.

This Cleverdam is a robust, deployable flood barrier to raise the shorelines temporarily during flood danger. The barrier is completely stored on site and will be erected only when needed.
