Grad Student Team Places Second Nationally in US EPA's Campus Rainworks Challenge

The US Environmental Protection Agency's Campus RainWorks Challenge is a design competition aimed at inspiring students to "develop innovative green infrastructure systems that mitigate the impacts of urban storm water while supporting vibrant and sustainable communities." The MSU student team chose to redesign a very vibrant, but underutilized space on the MSU campus that they renamed, "The Union Green." The competition was a project in Professor Cory Gallo's graduate design class, which is focused on design issues related to water. The team's design focused on creating a multi-functional space which not only manages stormwater in an artful way, but also creates an educational and inspiring social setting for students, faculty and visitors to the campus.
