Designing With Water :: Master of Design Studies Public Lecture
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
CAS Hall, 320 Newbury Street

Jason Hellendrung, Principal, Sasaki Associates, will present Designing with Water on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 6:30 PM in Cascieri Hall.

Waterfront cities face increasing challenges due to their relationship with water and the increasing threats of climate change, sea level rise, and more frequent and violent storms. Jason will present some of Sasaki's recent work combining research and practice of addressing these challenges and creating innovative solutions for the future, including the US Department of Housing and Urban Development Rebuild by Design Competition, NY Rising, the Sea Change: Boston exhibit and symposium, and the recently released report, Designing with Water: Creative Examples from Around the Globe, co-authored with The Boston Harbor Association.

Jason Hellendrung is one of the leaders in the Urban Studio at Sasaki Associates directing landscape architecture, planning and urban design work on a wide range of complex, urban and public infrastructure projects. Much of Jason's work involves re-shaping cities through public infrastructure improvements, and in particular, waterfront redevelopment and preparing cities to adapt to climate change, the integration of transit into the city, and parks planning and public access in urban areas.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Shaun O'Rourke at
