Join us at the Garden Museum on Friday 26th July when Landscape Institute President Sue Illman will be launching a new animation on Water Sensitive Urban Design.
Water Sensitive Urban Design is an opportunity to create beautiful, successful and resilient places. The film explains the concept and argues the case for using water at the heart of design. It is based on work led by CIRIA, delivered by Arup and AECOM with support from the Landscape Institute.
The event, which is open to all LI members, is the opening evening of this year's Student Conference and takes place over the weekend of July 26-28. Called 'Generation H20', the conference looks at water and water-sensitive design and is part of a wider focus the LI has been placing on water related issues; this event will see the culmination of some of this work and a chance to meet some of the key people involved.
Tickets, priced at only £15.00 will include full access to the Garden Museum and garden from 6.30pm, with the viewing at 7pm followed by drinks and beigels immediately afterwards.
CIRIA’s collaborative WSUD project was delivered by Arup and AECOM and funded by both public and private sector organisations including Defra, Natural Resources Wales, Glasgow City Council, water companies, consultants, manufacturers, drainage modelling software companies. The WSUD ideas booklet was supported by the Landscape Institute, CIWEM, ICE, RTPI and the Urban Design Group.
