TO COMPLETE PROJECT WAER ACCESS TO WATER ...... (09172010)- Old New urbanisms (New) [email_address]
FLOOD OLDS NEWS AS FLOOD ADAPTED DEFENCE SAMPLE OF FLOOD URBANISM NEW: 09:17:2010 (to follow with WAER project access to water...The full project with prevention of disaster for civilian protections,...,use of ancient buildings like lighthouses, cathedrals, castles,....in order to make look out points - for forecast- and/or dry feet zone to prevent community drowning -for instance- and an easy access during the preparadness and event like flood and/or flash floods). Spirits and project designs are close to the Dutch ILEA waterscape school of new thinking about tranforming with water, in the 21rst century and has much more to do with leaving water to its natural expansion instead of opposing to destrcuctive forces of water elements. This is a new water architecture - flood defence architecture – to answer and manage these flood crisis. In the past, ancestors wherever and whenever located in flood plains or river esturaines used to build them and find shelter for the sacre of their protections. Today, we prefer modern preventions that have limits -due to global changes- and also, these buildings of the past look ringard compared to new technologies. I believe anyway these buildings were safe havens and strongly build by masters, in such a way they have travelled in time (to become sometimes world hesritage -like the great wall in China....) In a more dynamic way, for example Vauban with basic stones built around France the most impressive coastal defence against floods with walls/embankements, and centuries after- today- they remained unchallenged by modern anti flood technologies.
