Southside Green Infrastructure Design Charrette
As a volunteer of the Green Infrastructure Network, Ethos Collaborative staff assisted with the planning and implementation of the Southside Green Infrastructure Design Charrette, in April 2014. The three-day event brought together the region’s most creative design and environmental professionals to design a green link along 21st St, a 12-block corridor that connects South Side Park to the Three Rivers Heritage Trail along the Mon. The goal of the charrette was to create a demonstration district of green infrastructure and green street strategies that can reliably remove stormwater from t
he region’s overburdened sewer system, improve transportation corridors for all users, and serve as a template for green streets and community green space in Pittsburgh neighborhoods. Design professionals included landscape architects, engineers, planners, architects, ecologists, artists, and community members for the Thursday evening to Saturday evening event. The event was sponsored by over twenty local businesses and organizations.
