|Abstract: ||The chapter addresses watershed scale problems and how the concept of ‘restorative redevelopment’ was proposed and developed on the “Nine Mile Run Greenway project.” Continuing his interest in interdisciplinary approaches to art and design, Collins engaged Pinkham, a water policy expert at Rocky Mountain Institute. They worked on the “Nine Mile Run” watershed to examine the potential for alternative approaches to land use and stormwater management. They assembled a national team of interdisciplinary experts with recognized expertise in art, stormwater, ecology, landscape design and public policy. The chapter describes the subsequent interdisciplinary design charrette that revealed new approaches to surface water and the policy issues that constrained such designs. Informed by stormwater regulations the project specified collaborative teams to work together developing innovative design, detention and retention schemes. Working from a specific construction budget, GIS maps, and onsite analysis the teams had to manage a ‘two year, 24-hour storm’. The text examines four sites, current policies and the resulting illustrated plans.|

|Description: ||The book is an outcome of a symposium at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University intended to illustrate the range of approaches and disciplines that attend questions of water sensitive design. Contributors include landscape architects such as Diana Balmori of Balmori Associates New York, Glenn Allen of Hargreaves Associates in Massachusetts and the geographer Dr Michael W. Binford of the University of Florida.|
