Elizabeth English

Water Institute member Elizabeth English, professor in the Faculty of Engineering, School of Architecture appeared on the The Agenda with Steve Paikin yesterday evening on TVO.

As Ontario deals with the fallout of another year of heavy spring flooding, many are wondering how the province can avoid a future of the dreaded cycle of flood, rebuild, repeat. For Elizabeth English, associate professor of architecture at the University of Waterloo, it's all about learning to live with water. She is founder and director of the Buoyant Foundation Project which designs and builds houses that float rather than flood. She joins Nam Kiwanuka to discuss her work.
