Water:Sewer:Power:Food – Thoughts on integrated urban infrastructure at TEDx Cape Town, 2011
I am an engineer by training, a consultant by profession and an ecologist at heart. I am employed by the WSP Group to provide design services on green buildings and urban sustainability projects though the global WSP Future Cities initiative.
My approach to urban sustainability is founded on collaboration in the fields of design, research and education. I believe integrated urban infrastructure is central to delivering our future cities and providing resilient responses to the social and environmental challenges we face.
