Diving in clear water thanks to increased biodiversity

Nyasha01cropAcademy of Architecture Amsterdam student Nyasha Harper presents a design for biodiversity in the city with many spin-offs. Her proposal for remodelling a part of  a run down park in Amsterdam West adds a great landscape design that tells a story, but also introduces a neighboorhoud based Swimming Club. Volunteers take care of the proposed water filtering plants that are cleaning a section of the blurry canal. As a reward they get a swim in the unprecedented clear Amsterdam waters. A design for neighbourhood empowerment, increasing biodiversity and quality of urban life. Dive in!
