Green infrastructure–Living Infrastructure, Tactical Urbanism and Stormwater Management–are 3 of the Top 10 2015 Urban Regeneration trends.
Urban place making has taken a foothold. Green buildings abound in most US cities. There are so many emerging and disruptive trends helping to improve the environmental, economic and social health of our cities and citizens.
Among the Top 10 2015 trends in Green Infrastructure are:
3. Living Infrastructure. Living infrastructure, especially in urban areas, weaves the network of natural landscape assets into the economic, social and environmental functionality of communities.
5. Tactical Urbanism. Think guerilla gardening or Portland’s painted streets.
6. Storm Water Management. Storm water can be an excellent source of water in most cities across North America. Even in sunny Los Angeles, a typical one-inch rain event produces more than 10 billion gallons of storm water, most of which, at the moment, hits asphalt and concrete, flows into storm drains and into the ocean.
