“Transition” is an innovative water purifying bridge, converting highly contaminated river water to drinkable source; at the same time trying to explore the architectural potential of water purification process, breaking stereotypes of current water treatment plants - closed  to the public. By incorporating swimming and bath facilities, it provides spatial and sensorial experience of clean water in all its forms. Moreover, on the urban level, it is connecting and revitalizing parts of the city.

Nano-Filter; graphene coated sand for water purification

The graphene based purification technology has been informed by my project Nano-Filter: a graphene coated sand filter for water purification. It has been tested on-site in Lanzhou during the expedition in November 2016. It has shown outstanding adsorption  capacity for removal of heavy metals and other contaminants.
