Urban Water Waste

About the case

Flooding is a major problem in the city of Arnhem, and specifically in the neighborhood called Geitenkamp. In the coming years, the drain pipes will be renewed, but it will not be enough in the fight against water. It is known that although the sewer is a convenient way to discharge water, it is not always the best option as the complex system overflows easily. In this case you will research different ways to direct water streams, such as the creation of special gardens, a waterpark or a major fountain. And since most land that overflows belongs to the inhabitants of the neighborhood, you will focus on how to involve them in finding a solution that benefits all.
