Description

DESIGN FOR WATER

Preface
Water is among the most critical resources in the Great Lakes region, the State of Michigan, and the City of Detroit.

Landscape architects from Spackman Mossop Michaels will be discussing resilient stormwater management techniques, and how these techniques can be integrated into contemporary and historic building design. From the design of expressive stormwater systems to the realities of complying with the City of Detroit stormwater ordinances (and getting your project permitted), we will spend an evening discussing all things water!

Refreshments happily provided.
