Design for Water: Resilience and Discovery

When:  Apr 15, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM (ET)
As designers focused on designing equitable and resilient educational spaces, this session explores how design engages with water, one of earth’s precious resources: water conservation and protection of water quality at the building, campus and regional scales; resilient design responses to rainfall, storms, flood and inundation; design that offers teachable moments about water as resource and mutable element; strategies that promote a sense of discovery and delight about water; fostering a relationship between designers, users and operators for project performance.
A panel of design experts at different scales will share experiences and projects.

Confirmed presenters:
Phoebe Crisman, AIA, UVA, Director of Global Environments + Sustainability Major

Erin English, PE, LEED AP, Practice Leader, Biohabitats

Ole Schrøder, Partner at TREDJE NATUR/THIRD NATURE, a Copenhagen-based multi-disciplinary design firm
