Infill Philadelphia Soak It Up Design Awards Program March 7

The Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! design competition challenged designers, engineers, and other sustainability professionals to show how green stormwater infrastructure can transform Philadelphia's neighborhoods.

Celebrate the innovative ideas generated by this national, interdisciplinary design competition at a March 7 reception in the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University Hall of Dinosaurs starting at 6:00 p.m.

An exhibition of all competition entries, rapid-fire presentations by nine finalists, and $10,000 prizes for three winning teams.

Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! is an 18-month partnership of the Philadelphia Water Department, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Community Design Collaborative with a focus on revitalizing urban neighborhoods through the adoption of green stormwater management in the Philadelphia region.

These methods are outlined in Green City, Clean Waters, Philadelphia’s $2 billion, 25-year plan to protect and enhance the city’s waterways by managing stormwater primarily through innovative green stormwater infrastructure.

Tickets can be purchased online.
