Embedding sustainable storm water management in urban blocks Towards an Urban Water Model for architects

Embedding sustainable storm water management in urban blocks Towards an Urban Water Model for architects

Papanikolaou, Kyratsoula Tereza; Liapi, Katherine A.; Sibetheros, Ioannis A.;

:

The paper describes an urban storm water management model underdevelopment designed specifically for architects, allowing the visualization ofstorm water management scenarios in urban blocks, as well as the quantitativecomparison of their impact to the microclimate. It seeks to answer the question ofhow computational technologies can help architects integrate storm watermanagement into the design process and engage with water sensitive designprinciples through the development of an ``architect-friendly'' model. The modelis expected to function as a simulation tool that will support design decisions onstorm water management retrofitting measures in urban blocks, by allowing theevaluation of an urban water improvement project at its initial design stage, aswell as the generation and comparison of alternate water integration designsolutions. Selected urban blocks in Greece will be used as case studies to test andevaluate the urban water model during the model development stage.
