Interactive climate wall in the Municipality of Schouwen-Duiveland Flood Museum.
At the beginning of July 2020, the exhibition ‘The Climate Wall’ opened in the Flood Museum (Watersnoodmuseum) in Ouwerkerk to examine climate change and water issues today. What can you do yourself to make your home and garden climate-proof? That is the question that the interactive climate wall allows visitors to the Flood Museum to answer.
The interactive Climate Wall consists of a curved wooden wall with a canopy, from which three projectors show an urban environment with situations that could be improved in terms of climate technology. By touching the flashing hands on the wall you will be presented with an animation that shows what simple measures you can take to achieve better water management (or prevent heat stress). On the back of the wall you can read texts that explain the story in more detail.
By interacting with the climate wall, visitors are able to shape and visualise potential adaptation measures and their impacts on reducing flooding.
The interactive climate wall was a collaboration between concept agency the Municipality of Schouwen-Duiveland, Podium from Utrecht, Johan Klungel, Hypsos, the Flood Museum, and Louis van Krieken Design. Engineering was carried out by Rapenburg Technologies and Hypsos museum design.
