Flooding of Rotterdam

I'm investigating what a flooding of the area, caused by rising sea levels in combination with outdated/failing dykes, might do to the existing buildings and the planning of new buildings on the site. 

The plan is to create a short movie of the flooding of Heijplaat in 2035-2036 including rising water levels, affected buildings, demolition of those buildings, normalization of water levels after flood and possibly some new buildings. 

The movie will be combined with, old newspaper pages concerning the critique of the old dykes and the flood & a diagram showing old VS new dykes.
