If a challenge seems so impossible to beat, perhaps it's not supposed to be beat, but creatively conquered by working with it, which is just what these Waterpleinen Public Parks propose to do.

Rain is a huge obstacle for cities below sea-level, but for Rotterdam the forecast is even drearier. With future rainfalls' increasing intensities, instead of overcoming the problem, designers Florian Boer and Marco Vermeulen have decide to embrace it. Waterpleinen Public Parks combines public space with a place for water collection.
