Showcasing Japanese traditional gardening techniques for managing water, a beautiful green infrastructure system blends seamlessly into the landscape while addressing modern stormwater requirements. Our tour and narrative of this ecological design challenge will begin with the recently completed Cultural Crossing village buildings and follow the flow of water downhill.
Using a Japanese porous ceramic paver called Greenbiz, a thin profile second story ecoroof absorbs rainfall, echoes a traditional Japanese farmhouse vernacular, and merges into the forest visually. Water not absorbed by the ecoroofs is collected and daylights in an ephemeral creek which slowly winds down the hillside around buildings, under bridges, and along pathways. Please join us for this great tour of a local, award winning project!
Our guide for the tour is GRiT board member Desiree Wood.
Wednesday November 28th, 2018, from 3 pm to 4 pm.
