Water Urbanism 2: East

a cura di K.Shannon B.De Meulder

- Water in dwelled Regions of the World is a topic of great global Relevance

- Presents original Essays of renowned international Experts in Architecture and urban Planning

Waters Urbanisms 2 - East gathers a number of leading practitioners and academics from around the world to reflect on the growing challenges of water in cities, infrastructural landscapes and the re-unification of engineered and natural processes in Asia. The predicted consequences of climate change, such as drought and flooding, new pressures of storm water and basin management and ecological concerns have led to new design concepts and to projects that create rich interdependencies of water and urbanism. The content is structured by three sections, all of which are richly illustrated.

Contemporary Positions investigates at wide range of paradigms and projects. Re-visiting/Re-editing Urban Water Projects looks back at the world's rich legacy of water urbanisms, both older and recent projects, to re-evaluate their significance in light of today's challenges. Explorations & Speculations: Excerpts on Water Urbanisms highlights design research and new interplays between water, urbanism and infrastructure.
