Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUB)

Currently, there exists a dichotomy between grey infrstructure used in cities, and green infrastructure used in regional areas. We need to change our thinking to allow a greater integration of these 2 types of infrastructure, especially in cities where the greatest problems lie.

Green Infrastructure typologies:

  • urban agriculture
  • green walls
  • urban woodlands
  • street treatment
  • city street trees
  • green roofs
  • vegetated urban design
  • parks, gardens and golf coursed
