  • American Society of Landscape Architects Annual Meeting Philadelphia USA (map)

Jamie Phillips, CMG, Kristina Hill, UC Berkeley, and Blake Sanborn, AECOM, part of the All Bay Collective, will be presenting a session entitled “Urban Design for Coastal Flooding: A Landscape-Led Design Strategy” at the American Society of Landscape Architects Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, October 22, 2018.

The presentation presents a new strategy for adapting to future flooding in coastal cities, using landforms that guide the mixing of seawater, stormwater, and groundwater. The ABC team developed this landscape-led approach as part of the Bay Area: Resilient by Design Challenge.
