For three young designers, a design residency led to a year of advocating for the preservation of the Cultural Landscape of moated homesteads they helped unveil in Southwest Flanders.

They established the Eiland Collective and are now designing different initiatives to help grow an ecosystem of communities involved in shifting the development goals of their local environment. They want to explore sustainable design practices that rely on a newly-found sense of belonging.
