About the topic/technology

Over the past twenty years, a unique interdisciplinary model of professional collaboration among landscape architects, artists, civil engineers and scientists has emerged. Water is at the heart of this provocative work as cities focus on its availability, quality and conservation and designers create structures and systems to handle water. Collaborative teams of landscape architects, artists, civil engineers and scientists are working on projects that address developing issues in urban design, including new ideas for infrastructure systems, the restoration of natural systems, innovative park design and public art. New strategies in urban ecological design consider enhancement of the integrity of aquatic natural systems at every point in the water cycle.
