Drainpipe waterfall

Hidden inside drainpipes, rainwater flows directly from roofs to sewage pipes, completely unnoticed. This process needs to become more visible, believes Katarzyna Zareba. In More Guiding Than Hiding, she gives the drainpipe a complete overhaul. She replaces the traditional plastic casing with an open net. “By making drainpipes more playful and beautiful, I hope to encourage people to make better use of the water that comes free, straight from the sky,” Katarzyna explains.
