PLACES – Ecobuild 2011
SUSTAINABILITY IS ABOUT PLACES – AND HOW WE MAKE THEM – AS MUCH AS THE DESIGN OF BUILDINGS AND PHYSICAL STRUCTURES. THE MOST SUSTAINABLE OPTION MAY BE TO REDISCOVER AND RESTORE EXISTING SITES AND STRUCTURES.
Waterways Forward project was funded by the EU Interreg IVC programme, with the aim of improving the management and development of Europe’s network of inland waterways: lakes, rivers, canals and adjacent spaces. It brought together 17 partners from 13 countries across Europe.
“Regeneration of existing waterways has wide-ranging benefits for sustainable place-making, with potential for wellbeing, biodiversity, low-impact transport, renewable energy, flood management, local food production, tourism, and social enterprise.”
PAT BROWN: DIRECTOR, LANDSCAPE INTERFACE STUDIO
“The appointment of the Landscape Interface Studio to support the Waterways Forward partnership brings an imaginative multi-disciplinary approach to spatial planning with new media communication.”
