The Future cities Laboratory, a programme of the Singapore- ETH center is organisang a Lunch talk on 15th August. Anne Loes Nillesen will be giving a lecture about ‘Designing flood proof urban regions’. She will show a multi-disciplinary ‘research by design’ approach, in which water serves as a guiding design principle for resilient urban regions. She will show examples of the application of this approach for the Dutch Delta Programme, the Bangladesh Delta Plan and the Houston Galveston bay area. As a result of the different physical, economic and political contexts, the approach in different regions leads to completely different design strategies.
