The new river embankments will be built as segments of straight edges, fairly long, gently weaving in and out, giving the rivers good opportunities for ﬂow.

In this way the general shapes and sizes of the islands are generated by the speciﬁc lakebed topography. However, the outline of the new islands is not organic. The islands have simple geometrical shapes.
