Hamilton Rainscape Learning Lab

Eastside Community Network
Detroit, Michigan

The Hamilton Rainscape emerged from community plans to address blight and stormwater issues. The location and elements of the design were selected through a community engagement process that brought together residents and the designers throughout the development of the project. Residents, ECN staff, and InSite Design Studio came together to create a beautiful open space to gather, redirect stormwater from the street into rain gardens, and serve as an education tool for the community.  More about this project >
