A gigantic map of all the cool plaques in the world. A project of 99% Invisible.

Golfbak Waterloopbos

This is one of a series of plaques situated in the "waterloopbos". This place was used as a big open-air laboratory with (large) scale models to study waves and water movements in harbours etcetera, until computer models took over. These models were built and used in 1955 - 1995, and then given back to nature. Some models were restored, others were left to be overgrown with plants and trees. There is a hiking path in the woods, with plaques explaining the various models.
