SCAPE Selected for Resilient By Design’s Bay Area Challenge

Sep 11, 2017

SCAPE is thrilled to announce that we have been chosen to participate in Resilient By Design’s Bay Area Challenge. SCAPE is one of 10 design teams selected through an extensive jury process out of 51 submissions. The challenge is a collaborative research and design project that brings together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative solutions to the issues brought on by climate change that our region faces today. Over the course of the next year, engineers, architects, designers and other experts will work with local community members to identify critical areas throughout San Francisco’s Bay Area in order to provide solutions to the region’s sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes.

The result will be 10 new implementable projects that offer an imaginative and collaborative approach to resilience. SCAPE’s team, called Public Sediment, is a multidisciplinary design team that views sediment as a core building block of resilience in San Francisco Bay. The team is led by SCAPE Landscape Architecture with the Dredge Research Collaborative, Arcadis, TS Studio, the UC Davis Department of Human Ecology and Design, the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, and the Buoyant Ecologies Lab.
