Galerie op de Rotte

Small chunks taken out of the river. The city river, a part of the city's fabric that doesn't invite use, proves to be a great escape. Where any Rotterdam citizen goes he unwillingly pollutes his city. By this intervention in the Rotte river, users make it a bit cleaner each time they use it. A few inflatable swimming pools were chained like an H ² O molecules, while floating in the city river. The existing water cycle pumps the dirty river water is through a reed bed. Not just the water in the bath is clean and clear, the clean water is also returned to the river. People would slowly swim their rivers clean.
