Artful Rainwater Design : Creative Ways to Manage Stormwater Paperback
This is the go-to resource for designers creating new stormwater systems that are exciting, creative, and fun.
Stormwater management as art? Absolutely. Rain is a resource that should be valued and celebrated, not merely treated as an urban design problem, and yet, traditional stormwater treatment methods often range from ugly to forgettable.
Artful Rainwater Design shows that it's possible to effectively manage runoff while also creating inviting, attractive landscapes.
This beautifully illustrated, comprehensive guide explains how to design creative, yet practical, landscapes that treat onsite stormwater management as an opportunity to enhance site design.
Artful Rainwater Design is a must-have resource for landscape architects, urban designers, civil engineers, and architects looking to create landscapes that celebrate rain for the life-giving resource it is-and contribute to more sustainable, healthy, and even fun, built environments.
