Prototyping Blue-Green Systems

Blue-green infrastructure, nature-based solutions, water-sensitive urban design and living architecture: there are many concepts that aim to integrate cities and buildings into ecological cycles and contribute positively to climate adaptation.  In order to successfully implement them in practice, it is necessary to incorporate interdisciplinary planning and to bring the above-mentioned concepts and the related expertise into the spatial design as early as possible.

Water and vegetation - how can both be integrated into (landscape) architectural designs so that synergetic systems are created? We want to address this question not only theoretically, but also practically with a 1:1 prototype. To do this, we will first form a planning team in which we will take on interdisciplinary roles and thus understand how blue-green integrated planning works. The resulting design will be implemented 1:1 during a weekend at the end of June.
