Water Imprint - Catchment thinking as a new approach to rethink urban densification strategies
thesisposted on 27.01.2020 by Gyongyver Engloner
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This PhD research investigates the potential of catchment-scale thinking as a new, emerging approach for the spatial integration of water landscape in urban infill situation in the context of climate change. The research proposes a series of exemplary water-sensitive demonstration projects in Melbourne that can serve as adaptable models for other ‘growing water cities’. To this end, the PhD uses design research, computation and generative design as the main research methods.
