Beatrixsluis AR / VR Experience


A journey through time

The Princess Beatrixsluis is the largest monumental inland lock of the Netherlands, an important part of the Dutch waterway network, connecting the ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam. The Beatrixsluis will be expanded with a third lock, ensuring more shipping traffic capacity in the future. The locks are located in the historic defense line called Hollandse Waterlinie, which will have to be altered in this project. To inform the many stakeholders about the lock expansion works, Rijkswaterstaat and the construction companies have assigned Purple to design and AR and VR experience, to illustratie the past, present and future of this area of historical importance in an engaging way.
