WHAT: “Water in our Cities – A Fresh Outlook at Dangers and Potentials”

To German artist Herbert Dreiseitl, water is a powerful link between art and the environment. At every scale, from private gardens to public spaces, his innovative designs bring together architecture, landscape architecture and the relationship between people, their well-being and the environment.

Dreiseitl founded the firm Atelier Dreiseitl in 1980, which has created water features all over the world. His most well-known project — the fountain in Berlin’s Potsdammer Platz — creatively utilizes rainwater management for flushing toilets, irrigation, floodwater protection and temperature moderation. The design includes a one-mile, man-made urban shore-line incorporating a reed-planted embankment, which is part of a complex biological and chemical water-cleansing system.
