Gyongyver Engloner and Daniel Nyandega: High & Low
High & Low is the joint exhibition of Gyongyver Engloner’s and Daniel Nyandega’s, PhD research titled Water Imprint and Cycles of Water and Land, respectively.
The two research showcase diverse design explorations in the Melbourne area, investigating potential pathways for coastal metropolises to tackle the combined challenge of urban growth and climate change.
Water Imprint investigates the potentials of catchment thinking as a new approach to rethink urban densification strategies in Elster Creek catchment and Moonee Ponds Creek catchment, while Cycles of Water and Land explores a range of water sensitive design tactics to adjust the highly modified lowlands of coastal cities, in particular, Melbourne’s lowlands to rising water levels. Both the researches were undertaken within Monash Urban Lab and in collaboration with CRC for Water Sensitive Cities.
