WATERSCHOOL M4H+ investigates how a range of resources can contribute to building a sustainable and circular learning environment, in order to meet the water challenge and ensure an optimized ecological footprint for the 6,300 future residents of Merwe-Vierhavens M4H+.
It illustrates what this new living and working environment could look like when its development is guided by a resource use that allows for the just interaction between all organisms, communities, and their environment.
The exhibition shows work of over 30 selected designers, architects and artists and a Waterschool (digital) library addressing the themes and collecting the results of the research by design into those resources that can serve as (building) materials and/or food while having a responsible relationship to water use.
