M-NEX Design for the Food Energy Water Nexus.
Recipient and Lead Research Consultant Qatar – 2021
The Atlas of Ecological The M-NEX Research Project is funded by the Belmont Forum and Qatar National Resesarch Fund. The M-NEX - Moveable NEXUS - looks at Design-led urban food, water and energy management innovation in new boundary conditions of change. It is an international research consortium including KEIO University Japan, Qatar University, Queens University Belfast, Delft University of Technology, University of Michigan and University of Technology Sydney. Based around urban design and practice, the research sees urban agriculture as a key facilitator of the Nexus, needing water and energy to become productive. This project will develop innovative and practical design solutions through stakeholder-engaged living labs in six different bioregions, Belfast, Doha, Detroit, Tokyo-Yokohama, Amsterdam, and Sydney. Each group will aim to translate current FEW-nexus research into real projects.
