Stormwater planning and design: Hangzhou, China
MetadataShow full item record
Because of rapid development and poor stormwater management, problems of flooding, water scarcity, and water pollution are becoming more serious in China. Moreover, the drainage infrastructure is mostly buried, invisible, and thus, in a sense, they are invisible to most citizens. That is a modern tragedy. This thesis examined the good stormwater uses in the past of China and the environmentally sound and aesthetically beautiful stormwater management in the United States. After that, this thesis mainly explored the comparison between the Chinese & the United States experience and how the combination of aesthetic and functional stormwater design in the United States could be adjusted to apply in China. This was reflected in one design.
