Designer-architect Rianne Makkink is the co-founder of WaterSchool and the Dutch design collaborative Studio Makkink & Bey based in Rotterdam. WaterSchool is a self-initiated design research project that looks into the possibilities of building a holistic school revolving around water as an essential material, subject, social, economic and political phenomenon. WaterSchool is displayed through exhibitions, all the while building a curriculum for the topics to be taught (education) and eventually constructing the distinct necessary spaces (architecture).
