working exhibition during IABR 2018 Rotterdam

The WaterSchool is a working exhibition to develop a future school which will be opened in the heart of the M4H district in Rotterdam, in the workspace of Studio Makkink & Bey. It opened her doors for six consecutive Fridays, during the six weeks of the IABR.

Within each of the Fridays, the topics of water and education were explored from different angles, according to a theme. The themes for the Fridays are: Clean, Grow, Harvest, Make, Build and Document.

A selected team of employees from Studio Makkink & Bey performed research on these topics and how to integrate them into the architecture and curriculum of the School, in order to present their findings each Friday. Paired with this, lecturers from the cultural sector, the industry and the government shared their views on water and education within lectures and discussions.
