You're Invited…Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! Design Awards Ceremony

The Philadelphia Water Department and Community Design Collaborative invite you to the Design Awards Ceremony concluding the Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! design competition. This national, interdisciplinary design competition challenged designers, engineers, and other sustainability professionals to show how green stormwater infrastructure can transform our City.

The design competition is part of Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up!—an 18-month partnership between the Philadelphia Water Department, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Community Design Collaborative to revitalize 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.

After a reception and an exhibition of competition entries in the Hall of Dinosaurs at the Academy of Natural Sciences, we’ll move to the auditorium for rapid-fire presentations by the nine finalists. Three winning teams will be chosen by a jury to receive $10,000 prizes. Proceeds from the Design Awards benefit the Collaborative’s Infill Philadelphia program. Reserve your spot!
