(mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Industrial Design Date 2016-12-02 Abstract The changing climate causes short but heavy showers, which rises a demand for water buffers in order to prevent cities from flooding. Within this graduation project I developed the urban waterbuffer concept of Field Factors further. Water that falls on roofs is collected in the Micro Urban Wetlands, where it is filtered to increase water quality, and then further drained to an infiltration point. From here the clean water surplus is infiltrated in the first aquifer. When water demand increases, in summer for example, this water can be pumped up and used for irrigation or cooling. I specifically looked into location-specific factors and local stakeholders and users. This resulted in a final design that is flexible and scalable to both the water assignment and the location.
