Design Assistance for Water-and Energy-Wise Communities, Burbank

Burbank Water-Energy Mapping

ALI recently completed a 3-year grant funded by HUD, “Design Assistance for Water-and Energy-Wise Communities.”  ALI teams mapped and modeled water imports, embodied energy, and urban stormwater potentials for  the City of Burbank.  ALI design studios and seminars analyzed Burbank's water, energy, and climate policy goals and generated urban, infrastructural, and architectural design proposals, ranging from single-family dwelling retrofits to large scale brown field remediation landcapes.  As part of the grant, ALI hosted extensive public programming including small-systems design workshops, lecture series, and the Drylands Design Conference (2012).
