Architecture and Planning


Living with Water

Public Studio is a place to enhance our visualization of the future of the region,  continuing the  process started by the Environmental Design Charrette in 1996.

In the Environmental Design Charrette “Living with Water,” architects, developers, environmentalists, government officials and civic leaders joined forces to seek realistic new models for making urban development compatible wt responsible management of water-related public assets.

This little video documents an early attempt to use the internet to visualize the planning process.  Thirteen years later the media has advanced to the point where this type of effort can be commonplace.


We now have the means to map the way to the future but
To get where we’re going,
we need to know where we really are.
