Minds In the Gutter: Storm Water Management In NY
Thursday, Apr 22, 2010
Heavy rainfall frequently inundates New York’s combined sewer system and threatens the health of our waterways with untreated spills. The Storm Water Infrastructure Matters (S.W.I.M.) Coalition challenged designers to consider how the city can use its 6,000 miles of roadway and 12,000 miles of sidewalk as an opportunity for better managing its storm water. Join us for an installation of finalists’ innovative designs, followed by a panel discussion about the submissions moderated by Deborah Marton, Executive Director, Design Trust for Public Space, and featuring some of the competition’s jurors and other industry experts.
Sponsors: S.W.I.M and the Design Trust for Public Space
