WHY THIS PROJECT MATTERS?

Promoting Green Infrastructure and Sustainable Living into our cities, for the creation of healthy places is no longer a choice, it has become a necessity. Today, it is estimated that more than 680,000 properties across London are at risk of flooding. In total, around 5 million people, in 2 million properties, live in flood risk areas in England and Wales.

The rise in population in London and other cities across the world is going to be increasing at a dramatic rate for the remainder of this century, which coupled with climate change, is going to have a great impact on how our cities’ infrastructures can deal with flooding.

A solution to this problem is Water Boulevards, which mitigates the risks of flooding, whilst also creating healthy places for people to live, work and visit.

The project integrates Green Infrastructure and Water Sensitive Urban Design into our streets, and can be applied as a network of green corridors to any city in risk of flooding to promote the three pillars of sustainability. Water Boulevards is a project by Baharash Architecture.
