Project awarded by the dutch prince

David Wooden wins the international Delta Competition 2010 he will present his design strategy titled the bid leak on the Orleans Outfall Canal at the Conference “Delta Cities in Climate Change” in Rotterdam September 28th. Congrats, David!

response to an leaking environment
The BIG LEAK addresses the Crescent City’s land subsidence crisis, proposing an adaptable stormwater conveyance system that modulates the ground in order to allow for varying infiltration conditions. Replacement of the existing underground system with parametrically derived surface canals would act as an ex-filtrating infrastructure for strategically recharging NOLA’s water table. Intentional ‘leaking’ results in an addition to, rather than a subtraction from the city’s water table.
