1. Copenhagen Redesigns City for Stormwater Management (and then some)


    A month before I arrived in Copenhagen in the summer of 2011, I watched  news footage of the worst flood the city had seen since at least 1955 (when systematic flood measurements began). It cost the city over $1 billion USD.

    The same year, Copenhagen failed to earn the European Green Capital award despite pristine performance across the board of sustainability indicators except one; public green space. 

    Copenhagen is now rolling out a new plan to address its challenges of both stormwater management and insufficient green space. 

    Note: Darth Vader on a Segway in the last image. Well played, municipal architects.
