“What can designers do to avert looming water-related realities?”
8.3'' x 6.8'' Portrait
As populations steadily increase in cities, the world’s natural resources are consumed at ever-faster rates. The majority of the world’s populations live in countries where clean water supplies are dwindling, and these water shortages are also quickly translating into food shortages. What can designers do to avert looming water-related realities? ‘UrbanLab: Bowling’ views potential water crises as opportunities to speculate on future architecture and urban design possibilities, especially in cities. A series of essays, graphic arguments and design proposals take an ecological approach to re-thinking the design of water-related architecture and infrastructure in existing and new cities.
