Ideanthro Ep 223 - Learning from water in Copenhagen

1/22/2018
More
In this episode we are joined by Simon Roberts from E2 Design Lab. Simon recently travelled to Copenhagen to participate in the Copenhagen Urban Lab. The event brought together six professionals of different disciplines for a week long intensive looking into a water challenge in Copenhagen. We talk with Simon about his experience during the week.

Ideanthro Ep 222 - Smooth or rough

1/17/2018
More
We continue or discussion of global and local maxima (see episode 221), using the concept of a smooth or rough landscape to guide how we react.

Ideanthro Ep 221 - That's like WSUD - Local and global maxima

1/15/2018
More
In this episode we discuss the concepts of local and global maxima, and relate them back to water sensitive urban design. Sometimes iteration leads to progress, but at other times it does not.

Ideanthro Ep 220 - That's like WSUD - Zero sum games

1/10/2018
More
What is a zero sum game, and what does it mean for funding maintenance of WSUD assets?

Duration:00:15:47


Ideanthro Ep 219 - Why did that grow there

1/8/2018
More
The way stormwater treatment systems develop as ecosystems over time is a constant fascination to us (and hence a regular topic on Ideanthro!). In today's episode we visit the Wakerley bioretention system (asset ID #B00028 on The WSUD Map). It is large. It has three cells. New species are popping up in all of them; but more so in one of the cells than the others. We wondered why?

Ideanthro Ep 218 - Turning bioretention condition into functionality

1/3/2018
More
Back in episode 164 we spoke about a challenge. The challenge of translating bioretention condition data into a coherent (and accurate!) picture of functionality. After a discussion with Carl Tippler a couple of months ago, we have an idea.

Ideanthro Ep 217 - A small perspective on a big storm

1/1/2018
More
The effect of a car parked on the roadside on stormwater flow in a large storm event.

Duration:00:04:33


Ideanthro Ep 216 - 216 bags of filter media

12/20/2017
More
In this episode we discuss recent research into bioretention filter media and parameters relating to plant health.

Duration:00:36:44


Ideanthro Ep 215 - Thats like WSUD - Quality quantity and the DA process

12/18/2017
More
Inspired by the book Black Box Thinking and a story about students making clay pots, we consider how the development assessment process might be improved.

Duration:00:07:08


Ideanthro Ep 214 - Doing more with less part 3

12/13/2017
More
We can't seem to keep away from this concept of 'doing more with less'. In this episode, thanks to something that Dale Browne at E2DesignLab said to me, we remind ourselves that there is more to this than simply doing more with less. There is another possibility.

Ideanthro Ep 213 - Whatever remains no matter how improbable

12/11/2017
More
This episode is inspired by one of Alan Hoban's presentations at the 2017 IECA and Stormwater Queensland Conference. Alan delved into research that shows that raingardens 'loose' far more water than MUSIC (yep, that tool used so regularly in Australia) predicts. In this episode we explain why this is a potential game changer for how we think about how raingardens work.

Ideanthro Ep 212 - Weeds and steam

12/6/2017
More
You've heard us talk about weed management in stormwater systems before on Ideanthro. Herbicide over spray can cause real problems, and we need a solution. For a while now I have been curious about steam weed control and its potential. On this episode, Jeremy Winer from Weedtechnics joins us to discuss weed control using steam (or more specifically, exceptionally hot water). This is the first time I have seen this method of weed control first hand (if you ignore the 10 seconds of something...

Ideanthro Ep 211 - Stormwater management - waste or resource

12/4/2017
More
On this episode I had the pleasure of sitting down to chat with Mark Liebman from The Sustainability Workshop. The more water and urban design people I meet, the I realise the broad array and skills and perspectives that we have at our disposal to bring to bare on the issue of how to make our cities water sensitive. Mark is no exception. In this episode Mark shares with me his thoughts on why we should manage stormwater as a resource (rather than a waste), and how the planning system we may...

Ideanthro Ep 210 - How good... raingarden good

11/29/2017
More
A well integrated raingarden inspires a conversation about cognitive biases in water sensitive urban design. This episode is bought to you with the help of the Central West Councils Environment and Waterways Alliance.

Ideanthro Ep 209 - Doing more with less part 2

11/27/2017
More
An idea about how to deliver more water sensitive urban design for less money.
