*FULL* Urban Design: Quick Hits, Designing with Water

Join Boston Living with Water at ​BSA Space for a “Pecha Kucha”-style event on “living with water” and resilient design ideas.

T​his ​public ​event is another in a series associated with the ​Boston Living with Water design competition: an international call for design solutions envisioning a more resilient, more sustainable, and more beautiful Boston adapted for end-of-the-century climate conditions and rising sea levels.

The evening will include a dozen four-minute slide presentations that will feature highlights from the ABX 2014 Living with Water Design Charrette, illustrate “living with water” design ​principles, ​show case best practices, ​and encourage energetic discussion.
