Building City Resilience through Water Infrastructure
Waterfront cities face increasing challenges due to their relationship with water and the increasing threats of climate change, more frequent and violent storms, urban flooding, and sea level rise. Jason will present some recent work addressing these challenges and creating innovative solutions for the future, including the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Rebuild by Design project, Living With The Bay on Long Island.
Presenter Jason Hellendrung directs landscape architecture, planning, and urban design work on a wide range of urban infrastructure projects. Much of Jason’s work involves reshaping cities through public infrastructure improvements and how these investments can catalyze development — in particular, the redevelopment of urban waterfronts and the integration of transit into cities. His project responsibilities include management and coordination of multi-client stakeholder teams for planning, design, and implementation.
