Let The Flood Go Away! / urban drainage system

Let The Flood Go Away!
Let The Flood Go Away!

Nowadays, urban drainage system capabilities are limited. There're few drains connected to sewer. As the increasing typhoon is sweeping cities, leading to flood disaster year by year, it's important to think about how to improve urban drainage system. At the same time, pedestrians sometimes fall well when the incident occurred. We have to consider how to improve that safe and effectively.
The design boldly makes the drain a large area in the sidewalk. In bad weather, the gravity of water compress the spring to open the drainage on the sidewalk, and draining water off rapidly. The solid metal grid above guarantee the safety of pedestrians.
