Make a Splash: Dynamic Water as a Design Opportunity - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW) / 1.0 GBCI SITES-Specific CE
Climate change has created increasingly volatile water that may overwhelm our stormwater systems. As a response to this threat, site design can create advantageous opportunities, from strengthening sustainability to improving social welfare. This panel explores designing for a changing climate through four projects of varying scale and geographic context.
The GBCI course ID for this course is 0920023417, providing SITES-specific CE hours required to maintain SITES AP credentials. Participants will need to pass the exam at the end of the presentation in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participants will need to self-report CE hours through their credentials account on https://sitesonline.usgbc.org.
- Learn about current trends and principles of designing with water—surviving, adapting, and thriving in the face of climate change.
- Identify opportunities to treat stormwater in design as a resource rather than a threat by leveraging it for improved sustainability and social welfare.
- Understand how landscape architecture design can help shift the public's perception of stormwater and flooding.
- Utilize innovative strategies and techniques of stormwater management and flood control, drawing from case studies that range in scale from master plans to site-specific examples.
