The language of water

Bruxelles Saint-Gilles, Louvain-La-Neuve, Tournai

Water shapes cities and territories in different ways, dimensions and scales; all along its natural and artificial cycles, water runs through an interwoven network.

Crossing surfaces, soils, subsoils, pipes and countless devices: from surface to sewer, above or underground, polluted or clean, cold or warm, visible or invisible, water moves unceasingly throughout a complex but unique infrastructure. The Language of Water proposes to explore this infrastructure as one explores a language, looking at the landscape as a complex text to be deciphered.
