EDC: Roackway Boardwalk Restoration

Risks, natural or man-made, most often have a cause and effect that transcends any individual building and impacts wide areas. The structure of the landscape, especially at natural edges like the ocean’s shore or fault zones, is always changing and adapting the land to new conditions. This can take place suddenly or in geologic time. How do landscape architects accommodate these processes in designing places that can reduce risk, adapt to climate change, and function as great public open space that is ecologically and esthetically rich? Case studies will demonstrate exceptional resilient design for three parks, two campuses—one institutional and one governmental—and a surprising golf course atop a water filtration plant

The inaugural Rising Seas Summit brought together more than 170 professionals from national and local government, industry, academic institutions and environmental NGOs together to highlight the interrelationships between sea level rise, climate change and extreme events. Understanding, anticipating and adapting to water related threats is critical to national security and a stable economy. Sea level rise will continue to damage coastal ecosystems and inland water systems, and the recent catastrophic impacts of Hurricane Sandy have demonstrated the risks faced by all coastal communities on the U.S. eastern seaboard. These new environmental challenges require that stakeholders share knowledge and work together to reduce and mitigate environmental and social degradation induced by climate change.
