The initiative Spree 2011 aims to make Berlin’s main river - the Spree - swimmable within 6 years! The project involves designing catchment tanks for sewerage overspills during storms (the leading pollutant) and then feeding these back into the pipes once they are cleared. Not only will the river be clean in enough to cool down in during the hot summer months, the floating containers themselves can be utilised for a variety of uses to finance the project, such as floating cinemas, cafes and even camping sites!
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
