Living Waters of Larimer (LWOL) is a community development project to demonstrate how ‘Green Infrastructure’ can be integrated into the cultural life, urban spaces, and economic systems of the Larimer community in East End of Pittsburgh, PA. Initially the project began as a collaborative team of two environmental artists: Betsy Damon and Bob Bingham working in conjunction with the Larimer Green Team, the Larimer Consensus Group and the Kingsley Association. The core team grew to include Christine Mondor, architect; Ian Lipsky, hydrologist/engineer; Matt Graham, LandBased Systems; and John Stephen, environmental attorney.
The LWOL project advocates for community open space that is brought to life with rainwater infrastructure. As an interdisciplinary team of artists, architects, engineers, policy people and neighborhood residents we catalyzed a conversation with homeowners, business owners, developers, organizations and government agencies in “water first planning to support the Larimer Vision-to–action-plan. Over a four-year period, we provided a structure of meetings, discussions, workshops and tours to educate and advocate for high quality placemaking.
