From the Architecture:

 The structure will be positioned at the midpoint of brouwer's dam which physically separates the two bodies.

A central tower is elevated above two low-profile volumes, creating a place for wind to circulate and introduce daylight into the heart of the building. Lifted above the earth or cut into the land, the structure serves as a benchmark for the uneven and changing ground levels resulting from tidal processes. Taking a visual aesthetic from the surrounding context, the facades are surfaced with reeds and green roofs.
