Jericho Bankston studied Architecture at the University of Oregon and recently completed his Masters in Urban Design from the University of British Columbia where he focused on environmental and sustainable design related to water systems and urban infrastructure. He is working towards licensure in architectural design and is currently a researcher at the GreenSkins lab run by Green Roof and LID specialist Daniel Roehr. His research focuses on Low Impact Design systems and water mitigation in urban contexts currently geared towards developing a universal LID calculator for designers.
There are many existing Low Impact Development (LID) applications available to calculate stormwater runoff volume, but they often fail to address LID systems in the initial design stages. To address this problem a LID application was developed for international use that supports designers considering how to reduce stormwater runoff through LID stra...
Currently students in higher education are taught LID but lack the ability to apply the knowledge in a technical and informed manner, this is often left to hydrological engineers, rather than those who design LID in architectural, landscape architectural and planning positions. Planners especially need to be trained as they are often found responsi...
The way of traditional planning and methods for urban flood management are behind us, but we have yet to reach a new consensus on how to model and implement flood management effectively into urban growth and renewal practices. While architecture makes radical new leaps in the name of a sustainable, healthier, future we neglect the positive impact l...
