Designing Landscape-led SuDS

Category: Skills & Training

During this masterclass, we’ll explore the opportunities that creative design of rainwater management can bring to landscapes. These include climate resilience, health & well-being, play, wildlife benefits, and the support of on-site BNG delivery.

We’ll demystify hydraulic engineering to make SuDS more accessible to designers and to enable constructive collaboration with engineers. In addition, we’ll introduce design approaches that empower landscape architects to direct the design of SuDS and include it as a layer of functionality in their designs.

Event description:

  • Brief introduction to the history, compelling reasons for, and design philosophy of SuDS.
