Welcome to 'Building with Nature'
Building with Nature is a new design philosophy in hydraulic engineering.
Natural elements such as wind, currents, flora and fauna are utilized in designing
a hydraulic engineering solution, thereby creating additional benefits for nature, recreation and the local economy.
A Spanish version of our Building with Nature book is now available.
