The Blue-Green Process
We now have a world wide situation where clean water, and available drinking water are critical issues for society, with the pressures of global warming and climate change in combination with population growth. The recycling and creative reuse of stormwater is an urgent necessity for this valuable resource.
KI Studio’s director Dr Judy van Gelderen, explored this topic in her professional doctorate thesis ‘The Blue Green Process’- expressing & recycling rainwater.
This thesis focuses on the creative recycling of stormwater, the improvement of water quality through sensitive planning and design and the benefits of expressing water in public space and how landscape architects can provide the critical planning and design input required to integrate water sensitive design approaches into the environment in a multi-disciplinary process.
