The pilot project will be composed of four elements that form a closed water cycle: a toilet, a septic tank, an organic filter and a cistern. It is a micro decentralized water treatment unit using constructed wetland technology to purify the water. The project is in keeping with the legacy of Roberto Burle Marx, who was a pioneer in the field of nature conservation and biodiversity protection.
It will accompany 2 exhibitions: one at StudioX in Downtown Rio and the other one in the atelier of Roberto Burle Marx on the Sitio Roberto Burle Marx.
The project is supported by:
Creative Industries Fund NL
Sitio Roberto Burle Marx
Dutch Consulate in Rio
Água Carioca - Sítio Burle Marx
