Abstract:The project "Smart Rainwater Buffer XXL - Design in Public Spaces" revolves around designing a Smart Rainwater Buffer XXL with aid of co-designers and users, following a participatory and user-centered design approach. Due to its upscaled size, the successor of the Smart Rainwater Buffer raises a lot of attention and is aimed to be placed in "de Bothoven" area in the city of Enschede. Initiated by the Municipality of Enschede, Waterboard Vechtstromen, and the University of Twente, "de Regentoren" project was created. This project sets to act as a network of multiple SRBs placed throughout the city, in order to prepare for upcoming showers, and monitor water collection. It is aiming to improve rainwater management due to increased rainfall, and also to be useful during regularly occurring phases of drought. This thesis focuses on researching the best suitable design, following the double diamond approach. Repetition of design iteration and continuous user evaluation yielded the first finalized design for this project, which was translated into a scaled model.
