Soak It Up: Designing with and for Flooding

April 30 @ 8:00 am 9:30 am MDT

Free, virtual event, “Soak it Up: Designing with and for Flooding”, A conversation with Kongjian Yu, 2023 Oberlander Prize laureate, and Pieter Schengenga, director of H+N+S Landscape Architects, the Netherlands, moderated by Elizabeth K. Meyer, FASLA, University of Virginia.

Climate change is accelerating the already formidable problems of managing stormwater, especially in major river systems around the world. This cross-cultural dialogue will explore different strategies for designing with and for flooding, turning a challenge into an opportunity to serve social and ecological needs. Yu and Schengenga will each give a brief presentation on their design projects, then dialogue together about working in different cultural, geographic, regulatory, and political contexts.

1 LA CES professional development hours will be available to attendees, pending approval. Register now: https://www.tclf.org/soak-it-designing-and-flooding
