  • A quantitative investigation of narratives: recycled drinking water

    Recycled drinking water represents one of the most obvious and technologically reliable sources of urban water. Yet it is one of the least implemented solutions.

These two concepts were prominent in the 1970s, but were sidelined during the neo-liberal era and are currently being rediscovered.
