About the Webinar
In his Blue Architectures presentation, Brook Muller will describe ecologically responsive approaches to architectural and urban design, such that projects deliver net positive watershed impact. The medium of water, too often marginalized in the design process, encourages a much needed systems approach that puts into meaningful alignment sustainable architectures and hydrologically responsive and resilient urban landscapes. The talk will feature illustrations of real projects on the cutting edge of water-centric design.

The Riverkeeper Learning Series is a monthly convening of experts, advocates, and passionate participants around topics that have an impact on the quantity or quality of water in the Catawba-Wateree River Basin. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about a water related topic that they may not think about every day and ask questions to learn how they can be a part of the solutions to the challenges presented.
