The aim of the project is to develop and to test building-integrated technologies of water treatment and water purification for the irrigation and fertilization of building-integrated greenhouse farms. The hygienically safe use of related water and nutrient flows is at focus. The project includes research on the potentials and opportunities of building-typological and urban spatial integration of Roof Water-Farm types for fish- and plant production. Challenges and risks of the transferability of this comprehensive infrastructural technology will be analyzed within the context of an innovative urban water resource management and urban food production. Guidances for different actors as well as media of communication will be developed and published.

In spatial and movement research the use of the term `landscape ́ is often understood as something external to and independent of the body. Climate change, high dynamics in urban development and new social movements are asking for methods, to read, interpret, design and to choreograph landscapes as structures of transformation.
We believe that how the body interacts with the landscape shapes its structure simultaneously as the landscape informs the body. Questioning approaches and perceptions of movement, rhythm and sequence could lead to methods of perceiving and designing landscapes as performative processes.
The workshop is presented in the context of Hybrid Platform, an initiative of the Berlin University of the Arts and the technical University of Berlin, to support projects in research and education in the heart of Campus Charlottenburg Berlin.
