Shallow Waters
explores two extreme cases of urbanized shallow water territories – Markermeer/IJsselmeer in the heart of the Netherlands and the Venetian Lagoon. This publication is developed as part of the Parallel Program to the Dutch Pavilion on Venice Architectural Biennale 2021, designed by Haller Brun and supported by Dutch Creative Industries Fund, Het Nieuwe Instituut, and EFL Stichting.

During the performative launch, ideas and experiences that emerged from the research for the publication will be presented to the audience in a spatial installationcontaining microphotographs, drawings, models, and animation. We will encounter freshwater microorganisms by live projection through the lens of Wim van Egmond’s microscope. Dr. Harm van der Geest (IBED – UvA) and Alice Smits (Zone2Source) will have an animated conversation on multispecies empathy with project initiator and editor Lada Hršak and her Bureau LADA colleague architect Ludovica Beltrami. Artist collective De Onkruidenier will look at the relation between ecologies and economies and will share a tasting of a foam landscape in their performance titled CryptoFoam.
