XS : MARE : CIEP SCHOOL
At the CIEP School in the favela of Mare, 900 pupils use 15m3 of water every day. The design proposal for this site combines the Água Carioca system with a communal school garden and outdoor play areas and facilities. Water storage doubles as a pavilion and rainwater harvesting takes place on the roof of an outdoor classroom. The system seamlessly integrates with the existing toilets, ensuring no barriers to using the system.
The design creates a live classroom, where the water cycle is made visible, fun and beautiful.
