Hartford, July 2009–Doug Suisman of Suisman Urban Design was invited to Hartford to presents the iQuilt project at the “Managing Wet Weather with Green Infrastructure” workshop held by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The workshop encouraged conversations with national experts, municipal operators, state and federal regulators, as well as design professionals about the benefits and costs of green infrastructure. The iQuilt contains numerous green infrastructure components, including the repaving of the State Office Building parking lot with permeable paving, and surrounding it with new landscaping in bioswales, or stormwater retention beds.
