NIRAS climate adaptation project features at The Rain is Coming Exhibition

Published: 20-01-2015

The Danish Architecture Centre focuses on rain and climate changes and included in this year's exhibition "The rain is coming" is NIRAS' project Sillebro Adal in Frederikssund, Sealand. It is a perfect example of how climate adaptation and restoration of nature go hand in hand to the benefit of the local community.

Water running into house basements has become something that many of us are familiar with. We need to get used to increasingly heavier rainfalls and we need to adjust our cities accordingly. The exhibition "The rain is coming" is how climate change adaptation can create better cities and how we can avoid having our basements turned into swimming pools and how to create recreational urban spaces that are able to contain the rain water.

Guests at the exhibition will gain an insight into one of Denmark's largest nature and climate adaptation projects - a rainwater system, which is designed to accommodate large quantities of rainwater and thus alleviate flooding problems in a densley populated area in Frederikssund. It is also a typical example of how rainwater can provide new life as new lakes and streams create habitats for animals and plants.

The exhibition runs from 16th January until 6th April 2015.  For further information on "The rain is coming"
