Sea Level Rise Event: “Designing With Water” on August 1st

Please join the City of Boston, National Park Service, Boston Redevelopment Authority, The Boston Harbor Association and Sasaki Associates at the USS Constitution at 9:30 am, August 1, 2014.

The City of Boston, Boston Redevelopment Authority and The Boston Harbor Association (TBHA) will announce an international design competition calling for creative and innovative climate change-resilient design solutions for three at-risk waterfront sites in Boston.  Hosted along with the Boston Society of Architects, the competition seeks implementable planning and design solutions that will prepare these sites for current coastal flood risks and future sea level rise.

TBHA and Sasaki Associates will also release a new report on outstanding climate-resilient designs from other cities such as Rotterdam, Seoul and New Orleans. The report, Designing with Water: Creative Examples from Around the Globe, provides Boston-relevant case studies on how our historic waterfront city can not only survive but thrive in the face of sea level rise and extreme coastal storms.
