An animation detailing a proposal made on the occasion of the What Design Can Do Challenge on the topic of Water.
To address the topic of water shortage, and show alternative ways to approach it, Studio Makkink & Bey aims to set up and build a school in Dwarka, dubbed the “Water School”. Within this school, selected emerging designers, artists and craftsmen will be invited to work together with the pupils on setting up and constructing the entirety of the school, ranging from pens to uniforms to the entire building of the school itself.
In this way, the school becomes both a learning landscape and a production landscape, therein both teaching in theory about more sustainable ways of handling water, as well as engaging students practically in constructing a real-life example of a more sustainable future.
When finished, the school will function as a sustainable hub, promoting and teaching about more environmental friendly ways of living and working.
