About The main topic of this thesis is dikes, especially climate dikes, and their experiences. The purpose of this study is to explore and discover the effect of (drastic) changes to dikes on the experience and experience value of people. Also the application towards design principles and the use of experience in the design process is studied. The experience is looked at from different angles and is also describes as the perception. Meaning, values and opinions about dikes and climate dikes is the main focus. This ‘so called subjective’ starting point is meant to be an addition to the present (mainly) visual and technical approach to dikes. As a case location the south side of the Neder-Rijn is chosen. Here lies a winter dike along the river, of which I choose the part between Opheusden and Rijswijk.
