The River Probes project by RBA was published in the prestigious GA Houses 2011 book. The River Probes project for the University provides both living, eating, sleeping and scientific areas within a very small 70 sq. ft. footprint. It will be a living and working building to allow scientists to live on the rivers in a controlled environment to conduct long term ecological monitoring of the surface quality of water. The Probes will also serve as public observation platforms both to view the rivers natural beauty and to learn about the toxicology and pollution issues facing the rivers today. The Probes will provide continuous streaming of data back to the University Laboratory.
