Summary

In the face of historic drought and climate challenges, the American Institute of Architects recognized the Drylands Resilience Initiative with the 2015 Latrobe Research Prize. Led by Arid Lands Institute in collaboration with Perkins+Will and City of LA Bureau of Engineering, this panel focuses on current and potential future relationships between design, water costs, and habitat creation. The team is conducting on-going research to enable arid communities to reimagine the infrastructure needed to capture, retain, and distribute stormwater. Team members will also discuss progress on a new digital modeling tool, Hazel, for aiding in the design of a water-smart built environment.
