Water ShieldThe Muiderslot
IJsfontein developed the interactive installation het Waterschild (the Water Shield) in the garden of Castle Muiderslot. This enables visitors to experience the role of water for the castle and through it its history.
Client: Het Muiderslot
Castle Muiderslot used to be a castle with a moat. The interactive installation the Waterschild is all about water and shows the various aspects of the history of the Muiderslot.
How it works
In the garden of what used to be a water castle, visitors walk down a flight of steps and dive into history. On a large screen they see a 7-minute presentation of the origins of the Muiderslot and the connection with water as its friend (protection) and enemy (floods). After the film the visitors decide for themselves: go behind the water screen and get drenched, or not?
IJsfontein as a partner
IJsfontein and Castle Muiderslot have a sustainable relationship. We have created installations in the castle itself, during which we have found that an integral approach produces the best result. For that reason, IJsfontein was closely involved in the concept development and strategy of the Waterschild and collaborated actively with architects (buro3 architecten).
