Walking on Water presents the work of five VEIL Eco-Acupuncture architecture and design studios conducted in the Netherlands from  2014.

Eco-Acupuncture is a process that supports urban communities to co-develop visions of transformed, low-carbon, resilient futures, in response to the anticipated environmental, social and technical impacts of a changing climate. These twenty-five year visions of new urban conditions are then used to design and plan many small interventions in the current environment,  seeding the development of the transformed futures. The program has operated across thirteen urban projects in Victoria and in Europe since 2008. This Exhibition features Eco-Acupuncture work in the Netherlands in 2014 with Rotterdam City, and 2015-7, with Leeuwarden, the capital of the province of Friesland and EU Cultural Capital 2018. These projects have involved collaboration with the Technical University of Delft and the Aalto University Design Factory in Leeuwarden.

Register now for our opening night on Wed. 25 October 2017, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm in the Atrium, Level 1, Melbourne School of Design.

Installation designer Erika Wells.

This exhibition will be housed in the Melbourne School of Design building at the University of Melbourne.

Presented by the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL) and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Canberra.
