This session presents a new strategy for adapting to future flooding in coastal cities, using landforms that guide the mixing of seawater, stormwater, and groundwater. The designers developed this strategy using an explicitly “landscape-led” approach, while competing as a team in the Resilient by Design Competition (San Francisco Bay area).

1. Be introduced to an example of a complex collaborative process of “pre-disaster” resilience planning 2. Understand the impacts of rising seas on local groundwater levels, which can cause secondary flooding 3. Understand the landscape-based adaptation strategy of “floodable development” as an alternative to pumps and seawalls 4. See examples of physical models as tools for design and community engagement in resilience projects
