About Waterstudio.nl BV
Waterstudio.NL is an architectural and urban design firm that has taken up the challenge of developing solutions to the problems posed by urbanization and climate change. Prognoses are that by 2050 about 70% of the world’s population will live in urbanized areas. Given the fact that about 90% of the world’s largest cities are situated on the waterfront, we are forced to rethink the way we live with water in the built environment. Given the unpredictability of future developments we need to come up with flexible strategies – planning for change. Our vision is that large-scale floating projects in urban environment provide a solution to these problems that is both flexible as well as sustainable.
Role in the Project
The role of WS within the Space@Sea project will be the translation of land based communities into sea based communities
The main goal is to add the social layer to the technical and functional requirements, which will be the result of the first part of the research, to develop an urban fabric that will be social accepted as a living area.
