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.
Building with Nature has a new paper published in the Journal of Hydo-Environment Research. This paper can be found here. Also a new paper in the ICE Virtual Library has been published. This paper can be found here. Information about the paper from ICHE 2014 can be found here.
