End Date

Description
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).
