1. Platte River - from dumping ground to neighborhood amenity, recreational potential, is having a river in your back (or front) yard in RiNo, Globeville, Elyria an amenity or not?
2. Stormwater - what are the unique issues surrounding water quality and how do they impact aesthetic and experiential conditions for the north Denver neighborhoods?
3. Groundwater - parts of Globeville, Elyria, and Swansea have all been Superfund sites in the past. What does this mean for generations to come?
4. Aesthetics of Water - what does design have to do with it, and how does parametric technology partner with today's water issues?
