Dutch Dialogues New Orleans

Learning from the Netherlands, water infrastructure challenges equal design opportunities in New Orleans.

Our methodology begins with a regional awareness and layers strategies at increasingly higher resolutions in order to integrate systemic and structural measures.

Our design approach is based on Living with Waterâ„¢ and Building with Nature. Like water itself, these concepts cross borders, disciplines, and scales.

Local and international urban design and water sector experts convened in New Orleans to reimagine how the fundamental qualities of water and the landscape can reshape the way we live in an urban delta.
