Comment on Public Sediment – our Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge proposal

Nov 20, 2017

PUBLIC SEDIMENT, the SCAPE team’s entry for the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge, is live! Public Sediment features three proposals for investing in the San Francisco Bayland ecosystems to buffer vulnerable communities and species from the threats of sea level rise. The project was developed for the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge, a design competition 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 in the Bay Area. Projects are posted here; please login and comment with your feedback until December 1, 2017.

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 Arcadis, the Dredge Research Collaborative, TS Studio, the UC Davis Department of Human Ecology and Design, the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, and the Buoyant Ecologies Lab. Thank you to University of Toronto Daniels for model fabrication.
