The World Heritage Centre Wadden Sea
The World Heritage Centre Wadden Sea will serve as a dedicated center, highlighting the UNESCO World Heritage status of the Wadden Sea. This sustainable and iconic building, located in the harbor of the Dutch fishing village Lauwersoog, is scheduled to open its doors in 2025. It will become a place dedicated to fostering a healthy balance between people and nature in the Wadden, for the sake of future generations.
NorthernLight is designing an interactive experience that highlights the unique natural value of the Wadden Sea and the ecological challenges it faces. The new World Heritage Centre nurtures the bonds between people and nature in and around the Wadden Sea, the only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Netherlands. The experience takes you on a journey of discovery. See, feel, hear, and taste the extraordinary ecosystem of the Wadden, with your feet in the mud and the salt wind in your hair. Learn about life in and around the Wadden Sea, watch how we take care of seals, find out how the tides work, roll up your sleeves, and lend us a hand.
One of the elements of the experience of the World Heritage Centre is an interactive projection mapped maquette, which will take you on a journey through the formation of the Wadden Sea and allow visitors to experience the ongoing interaction between humans and the Wadden Sea.
Design and development
The World Heritage Centre Wadden Sea project is currently in full development, scheduled to open its doors in 2025. The construction of the building is in full swing, and behind the scenes there’s hard work being done on the development of the interactive experience. NorthernLight has successfully completed the concept design of the exhibition and visitor interactions – an inspiring and fun co-creative experience for everyone involved. We are grateful for the inspiring collaboration with the World Heritage Centre team. To be continued!
