OOZE (founded in 2003 by Eva Pfannes & Sylvain Hartenberg) is an international design practice based in Rotterdam, operating between the fields of art, architecture and urbanism.

Their work explores how our lives and cities can be more synchronized with nature, and combines an elaborate understanding of natural, ecological processes with technological expertise and deep insights into socio-cultural behavior. Their ongoing project “Água Carioca” in Rio de Janeiro has been exhibited at Studio-X in Rio de Janeiro and the Sao Paulo Architecture Biennial (2017), and is the recipient of the Lafarge Holcim Awards Bronze 2017 for Latin America. Ooze is currently working on the Water as Leverage program of the Dutch Government and 100 Resilient Cities in Chennai, India.
