Living valleys in Brussels’ XX century belt
This project is part of a wider research, LaboXX+I, focused on the belt built during the 20th century around Brussels. The research aims to improve the understanding of the water system, in a region where flooding and water pollution are known issues. Mapping is used to describe the water “machine”, as the water system is largely artificialised in Brussels, as well as the sewage system in relation to rivers. The urban tissue is then studied through the prism of water.
