Welcome to 'Building with Nature'

Building with Nature aims to utilize natural processes and provide opportunities for nature while realising hydraulic infrastructure. Design guidelines on how to make this happen in practice are the main end product of the Building with Nature innovation programme. The work is carried out by the EcoShape consortium, that consists of private parties, government organisations and research institutes.
