Condensing the In-Between // rethinking the role of cemeteries in urban areas
Cemeteries are among the most polluted city areas while usually also one of the greenest and least visited places. The project deals with an existing cemetery in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and proposes a solution for groundwater pollution and stormwater storage by the introduction of a new water purification system and a new circular garden's planting scheme.

Breathe fast: we’re backing off the rim.
