Bridges Over Troubled Waters

Cover Bridges Over Troubled Waters

In Bridges over Troubled Waters presenteert CROSSTALKS een reeks baanbrekende, wetenschappelijke bijdragen van gerenommeerde onderzoekers. Elk vanuit hun eigen discipline, lichten onder meer 8 VUB-onderzoekers hun kijk toe op de waterproblematiek. Deze academische bijdragen worden aangevuld met bedrijfsprojecten rond waterbeheer en met bijdragen van architecten en kunstenaars die ons de taal aanreiken om de uitdagingen te verwoorden op een metaforische en tegelijk kristalheldere manier.

Vervolg in het Engels:
Humans have a very strange relationship with the Earth we live on, and our interaction with water is even more complex. We have not taken good care of our global well. Rivers, oceans and waves have been shamefully used and abused for defensive, exploratory and economic reasons.

This 5th CROSSTALKS book presents a series of great academic and corporate projects that address the challenges associated with water governance and environmental issues, intertwined with contributions by world-class artists who give us a language to discuss these challenges in a metaphorical yet often crystal clear way.
The specific situation of the Zenne valley and the City of Brussels is a perfect test case for urban development all over the world in which water and rivers again play a major role, and where there are many gaps to be bridged between regional policymakers, decision takers, developers, architects and citizens.
