This year the Delta Intervention Studio, an inter-disciplinary graduation studio focussing on water related issues, concentrated on Rebuild New York and New Jersey after hurricane Sandy.
In an open debate we want to confront three teams of the Rebuild-by-Design after hurricane Sandy, a program initiated by the US government, with the outcome of the graduation studio. What can the Dutch approach contribute to the water safety issues in the US? What is the role of civil engineers versus spatial designers? We talk about complex problems and tasks, how integral is a project?
We invite urban designers, landscape architects, architects, civil engineers and planners interested in water system design, both students and professionals, to talk about Lessons Learned; rebuilding after hurricane Sandy.
Participating teams Rebuild-by-Design:
- Sabien Thomaes (urban designer, Palmbout Urban Landscapes), Team Interboro
- Eduardo Marin Salinas (landscape architect and biologist, De Urbanisten), Team MIT CAU + ZUS + Urbanisten
- Nanco Dolman (consultant Water and Spatial Planning, Royal HaskoningDHV), Team OMA
