Dutch Design Week 2021 features The Butterfly Effect
15 October 2021
We are excited to announce that The Butterfly Effect will be featured during Dutch Design Week 2021 in Eindhoven! Our project, a collaboration with Studio Solarix and DS Landschapsarchitecten, can be seen and talked about in Kazerne – Home of Design. The expo will be live from Saturday 16 October until Sunday 24 October from 12-8 pm.
The Butterfly Effect offers a helping hand to small-scale ecosystems and in doing so contributes to a large-scale approach to climate change and biodiversity loss. Building a treetop-level crossing for insects can help to restore important natural connective routes. The ‘web over the motorway’ offers a huge surface area on which to generate renewable energy. Thanks to its honeycomb structure, the lightweight crossing can be filled with materials that generate solar energy. The web is modular and can grow in line with technical innovations. Thanks to the double use of space less of the landscape needs to be set aside for solar panels, creating space for biodiversity and food production instead. The Butterfly Effect demonstrates sustainability as a source of design: techniques and esthetics are fully integrated to create an harmonious attractive design. Eye-catching shadow patterns create a unique experience. The web can easily be applied to other sites to become an important part of the sustainability of infrastructure projects globally.
Our colleagues and experts will be at location the full week to talk about the project and its potential; we hope to meet you there!
