This week, we discuss the US City Using Architecture to Combat Floods. We report from the Architecture Business Directory and explore the city of Boston in the United States that has seen its share of floods due to its unfortunate proximity to the coastline.
The city has collaborated with the SCAPE Landscape Architecture team to protect its coastline against climate change. The scheme involves increasing access and opening the space along the harbour to protect the city from a major flood. The plan will create elevated landscapes, flood resilient buildings, and improved waterfront parks. The city’s mayor aims to create a climate-ready and resilient Boston Harbour.
