De Urbanisten and the Wondrous Water Square

Published by nai010 publishers
Edited by Florian Boer, Jens Jorritsma, Dirk van Peijpe.

Worldwide, the frequency and severity of rainfall is increasing. This poses a problem for many cities, especially delta cities such as Rotterdam, which lies on the River Maas and also below sea level. Currently, Rotterdam receives 600 million liters of extra rainwater annually. To meet this problem, De Urbanisten devised the “water square”: a plaza that functions as a play area, a floating grass field, a theatre and a place that can accommodate the water that would otherwise flood streets and inundate basements. This graphic novel tells the story of the water square from various angles. It illustrates the genesis of the water square, from drawing board to the eve of the construction of the first water square in the Netherlands. And it narrates the story of Max, an adventurous boy who explores the water square during a heavy downpour.
