Project Description

Contracting entity: Stadtwerke Karlsruhe, created in 2012-2013

This project consisted of a series of short animations explaining water treatment, focussing on the following aspects:

  • How the water gets into the groundwater,
  • how wells work,
  • what the difference is between untreated and treated water,
  • what ventilation is,
  • how filters are cleaned, and
  • the route of drinking water from the plant to the tap

The way untreated water is turned into pure water was to be explained using a 3D model of an existing water treatment plant. Towards this end, 3D visualisations, animations and a web environment constituting the framework were created. mach:idee developed the concept, and created 3D models, animations and illustrations on this topic.

A supplementary children’s book was also published.
