Book Launch: Innovations in Urban Water Infrastructure

Tue, Oct 11, 2016    6pm

Climate resilient infrastructure is changing the way we build our cities to reduce the impact from superstorms, droughts and other severe weather. Innovations in Urban Water Infrastructure, a new book by pioneering practitioners and Columbia University faculty S. Bry Sarté and Morana M. Stipisic, features urban systems designs that decrease the urban heat island effect, reduce pressure on aging infrastructure, absorb water for flood protection, filter water for reuse, and provide ecological habitat and ecosystem services. The book presents solutions drawn from practice, consultation, and two years of work within United Nations Habitat III Conference Preparatory Process; offering a toolkit of infrastructure that simultaneously delivers engineering, social, spatial, environmental, and health benefits.

The authors will be joined by renowned sustainable design experts Kate Orff and Eugenie Birch for a discussion that will interest urban designers and planners, architects, engineers, public agencies, NGOs, and anyone interested in creating healthier, safer, more resilient urban environments.
