ADAPT TO WATER
Under natural conditions, water is not controllable. How to effectively control water through the combination of building, landscape and public spaces is an eternal topic between human and nature. It rains a lot in Gothenburg, however, it shouldn't be a barrier to getting close to nature for human.
Taking advantage of the water's properties to create some interesting indoor and outdoor spaces to make rainy days more attractive was the main concept of the project. At the same time, rainwater is an important resource, and its collection, purification and reuse can help promote sustainable local development.
The different characteristics of rain water affect people's sensory experience.
