THE ABILITY TO REALLOCATE WATER BETWEEN COUNTRIES VIA TRADING IS BEING ADVOCATED. IN 21ST CENTURY THIS IS BEING DONE BY CREATING A WATER EXCHANGE WITH WATER INDEX

WATER SCARCITY. LIQUID CAPITAL: GLOBAL THIRST AND KAMCHATKA AS THE SOURCE OF RUSSIAN NEW PROSPERITY TYPE: Research-based design YEAR: 2015 DESCRIPTION: PERSONAL ROLE: Idea development, interviews, graphical work TUTOR: Winy Maas, Nicholas Moor TEAM: Kateryna Romanova, Sofia Minasyan, Ivan Erofeev, Maryana Zviagina

WATER SCARCITY IS A GLOBALLY SIGNIFICANT ACCELERATING CONDITION, LEADING TO CHALLENGES IN FOOD PRODUCTION, HUMAN HEALTH, AND ECO- NOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN REGIONS AND STATES AS A WHOLE.

POPULATION GROWTH, TOXIFICATION AND PROFLIGATE WATER CONSUMPTION PATTERNS ARE OVER- WHELMING RENEWABLE FRESH WATER. THROUGH REEVALUATING EXISTING WATER RESOURCES RUSSIA HAS THE POTENTIAL TO RESCUE THE WORLD FROM A DESERT OF THIRST.

These factors include the distribution of humans in relation to the supply of water, patterns of demand, presence of water engineering to stabilize flows, seasonal and interannual climate variations, and water quality.

Water is essential for life, and also possesses social and religious symbolism. The ways water is used have transformeds through time. Today water is used to produce power within hydro stations, as a cemetery for nuclear waste and as fuel for transport (as a source for hydrogen transport). Water is packaged and sold as a commodity:

Global warming leads to the desertification of regions, as well as to the reduction of mountain glaciers, that change the location and amount of water around the world from drought to flooded regions. Meanwhile agriculture is the biggest consumer of freshwater - 70 % of the world`s total consumption.

Nearly all water on Earth is located in the oceans, leaving only 2.5% as freshwater, where nearly three quarters is frozen, and most of the remainder is present as soil moisture or lies deep in the ground. The principal sources of freshwater that are available to society equal a tiny fraction (tenths of 1%) of all water on Earth. The supply of freshwater is conditioned by several additional factors, which amplify the patterns of abundance and scarcity.

Besides that, the agricultural sector contributes 50% of pollutants that affect countries’ water supply. Moreover, the water supply is a sector with extremely high corruption risks, and the water crisis is partly the re- sult of a governance crisis. The minimal human need of water is defined as 50 liters per day (personal and domestic use)4. Today 1.2 billion people live in the regions affected by physical water scar- city and 1.6 billion face an economical water scarcity Countries with rapidly growing economies like China, Turkey and India do not physically have enough water in some regions. At the same time many countries in Africa such as Ethiopia and Sudan, parts of India and Nepal do not have the economic possibility to extract, develop and finally use their physically available water resources.

Today, Africa uses only 4% of its own renewable water resources (whereas developed countries use about 70-90%) due to economic inability. Globally, this poses the question of future cooperation and dependency between countries. To address increasing competition between consumers - due to the decreasing availability of water and water scarcity itself, the ability to reallocate water between countries via trading is being advocated. In 21st century this is being done by creating a water exchange with water Index , and involving water resources in market relationships.

RUSSIAN COMDITIONS Unlike major parts of the world, Russia has much water potential. Continuing water tox- ification, outdated water infrastructure and huge levels of corruption in the sector indi- cate that this potential is underestimated today. In Russia, the drivers of water sector transformation are different. Consumption of freshwater is lessening due to a decrease in industry (which is the biggest consumer 64 % of fresh water in the country), and the decreasing of agriculture.

RUSSIAN TRAJECTORIES Global water scarcity will lead to Russia growing in significance as a global geopo- litical player, which has one of the biggest reserves of freshwater in the world. Water export can become an important sector of the Russian economy in the future. Since 2011, the Russian government has seen the growing potential of water export, which has already led to the decision to create a water exchange in Saint Petersburg by 2020. “In 5 or 7 years new water lines will appear in Rus- sia, allowing us to export freshwater”- Boris Gryzlov, Chairman of the Supreme Council of United Russia. In this light polluted water is also economically available and can be sold. The first Russian water port is already under construction in Sochi. It will be finished by 2019 to meet the challenge of approaching world water scarcity. The freshwater supply will mainly be directed to countries: India, China, UAE. China and India (countries with the largest economies by 2040) have the biggest demand and geographically are the closest neighbors to Russia. Furthermore, since 2011 the project of construction of water pipes from Russia to China is under active discussion.


WHILE WATER COULD BECOME A NEW DRIVER FOR THE RUSSIAN ECONOMY, THIS FUTURE REQUIREST SYSTEMATIC CHANGES, AND RETHINKING THE ROLE OF WATER AND RELATIONSHIPS WITH IT.

THE FUTURE SETTLEMENT By the 2050s the Russian East plays an important economical, social and political role. Kamchatka peninsula has become one of major development centers of the country due to its water resources. “East and West Uniting” was the motto of the all-Russian survey in 2010. Kamchatka is located directly at the crossroads between Europe, the US and Asia and it has to become the ‘capital’ for water resources, heavy water production and water trading. The idea of Russia as the connector of East and West has been discussed and imagined for many years. - The collapse which occurred in 2019 demonstrated the untenability of the system and with mass dissatisfaction - Unlike oil and gas, which used to be the main sources of Russia’s budget, water has a human scale, water is a necessity for human life - To create a new culture of consumption and to stimulate citizens to uphold the national water priority, ahave been introduced “personal water status” has been introduced To create a new culture of consumption and to stimulate citizens to uphold the national water priority, “personal water status” has been introduced. This makes every citizen a member of the Water Corporation and lets them earn money for saving water. To do so a lot of different scale mergers are introduced to Kamchatka society. Special apps for controlling water and with tips for saving it, clubs for water culture education, TVshows related to ecology and water consumption, public eco-events, supermarkets with goods sorted by volume of water needed for production, lightning facades publicly showing your amount of water consumption.

WATER HAS BECOME SOCIETY’S LONG LOOKED FOR NATIONAL IDEA.


THE DOCTOR TYPE: Competition YEAR: 2013 DESCRIPTION: The Doctor is supported by government, situated in temporary structure institution, that is called to put symbiosis between big Ukrainian organizations and talented students in a new levels PERSONAL ROLE: Idea development, visualization, drawings, schemes TEAM: In cooperation with Maksym Rokhmaniiko AWARD: 1st prize - CANactions 2013

Whenever governmental or other Important organization feels really bed... ...the Doctor comes...

Once country’s leading design institute, today Kyivproject leases 91% of its offices...

So we thought that it definitely needs the Doctor. We could not find official statistics, but the majority of smart people we know are trying to leave Ukraine

...The doctor collects experienced professionals from the organization and encourages them to share their knowledge with youngsters...

Doctor’s adaptation to the current situation

...The Doctor helps youngsters to be established in their field of study in tier country, instead of working in serves sector or emigrating...

Since the Doctor is mobile, temporary structure, after curing one organization it goes further... ...to the Kyivproject, this time.

Generated form is designed to minimize solar access loss on the facades of Kyivproject. This form is used for the Doctor to be inscribed in..


The Doctor is supported by government, situated in temporary structure institution, that is called to put symbiosis between big organizations and talanted students in new level.

The Doctor’s structure consists of a set of modular capsules, that are inscribed in the maximal shape that is created in order to minimize shadows.

This flexibility, the modular structure provide, allows to create different sets of spaces from rooms for two people 15m2 , to big, open spaces 150 m2. Watertight

Transparent

Reflective

The doctor is used to draw energy from simple photovoltaic solar panels that are placed into the roof of the southern block of Kyivproject. So after the Doctor leaves somewhere else, it leaves that source of sustainable energy to Kyivproject’s needs.

And also, in exchange for lifeless pool, that is not functioning now, this site get’s beautiful public space, that is good for people who work in the neighborhood to spend their free time there.

Kyivproject obtained fresh blood and returned former power. At the same time, it got sustainable sources of energy and good public space. And the Doctor is really proud that he was able to help this organization. However, the Doctor never stops…
