Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up- Meeting Green

6,505 views

Published on

Meeting Green is one of three winning entries in a national, interdisciplinary design competition created by the Philadelphia Water Department, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Community Design Collaborative to inspire innovation in green stormwater infrastructure for Philadelphia.

The competition challenged architects, landscape architects, engineers, and other sustainability professionals to show how green stormwater infrastructure could transform the city.

Teams were asked to address the unique stormwater management challenges and opportunities at one of three sites based in Philadelphia. Each site represented a different urban context and land-use (industrial, commercial, or neighborhood). Meeting Green was the winning entry in the NEIGHBORHOOD—Greening the Grid Category.
