Storm Water Management

Storm Water Management

Design Performance Objective

Storm Water Management
This presentation slide shows a design precedent, the plan relationship between building and cisterns, and the aesthetic effect of cisterns (especially successful—the use of cisterns to form an arcade).

Student: Sara Richards

Fall 2006 McCall Field Campus Studio

Program Statement
Design for responsible storm water management.

This project responds to NAAB Student Performance Criteria

#19: Environmental Systems
Understanding of the basic principles and appropriate application and performance of environmental systems, including acoustical, lighting, and climate modification systems, and energy use, integrated with the building envelope

Investigative Strategy

Design roofs to drain to cisterns. The building’s metal roof was designed to drain to a series of corrugated metal cisterns that enhanced the design intent of ‘architecture as pedagogy’ by making the water collection apparent and an aesthetic statement.

Evaluation Process
Perform cistern sizing calculations using techniques in InsideOut or The Green Studio Handbook. Show how the system is integrated with other technical systems and design aesthetics. Collected water can be used for drinking, toilet flushing, landscape irrigation, and forest fire protection.
Evaluative Criteria
Make sure cisterns are sized correctly and well-integrated technically and aesthetically.

Cautions - Possible Confusions
Roof materials should be selected for compatability with cistern use. For this project fire-resistance and snow loads also need to be considered.
Range of Applicability in terms of CLIMATE
Range of Applicability in terms of TYPE
This type of approach is suitable for a small to mid sized building.
Reference Material
The Green Studio Handbook, Kwok & Grondzik
Duration of Exercise
This work was presented at the culmination of an eight-week comprehensive design phase.
Degree of Difficulty / Previous Knowledge Required
This is work assigned to a graduate student in her penultimate studio taken after all of the basic technical courses on structures and environmental systems. The student was also concurrently taking a graduate seminar on building integration.
