Design for Flooding: Architecture, Landscape, and Urban Design for Resilience to Climate Change

Feb 19, 2011 5:39 PM
Craig Applegath

One of the key issues in creating capacity for greater resilience in cities is the ability for a city to develop effective strategies for improving the actual physical resilience of their building stock in the face of ever greater numbers and intensities of significant weather events. 

Don Watson has just published a book on best practices and lessons learned for creating buildings and communities that are more resilient in the face of severe weather, climate change and flooding. See more about this topical book at: http://ca.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470475641.html . 

Here is a description of the book from the Wiley website:

Architects, urban planners and urban designers, as well as water resources engineers and landscape architects will discover thatDesign for Flooding presents the best practices and lessons to create buildings and communities that are more resilient in the face of severe weather, climate change, and the prospect of rising sea level. Design for Flooding covers technical and institutional issues—along with new design and business opportunities—built upon fundamentals of climate and weather, stormwater and floodplain management; best practices of flood-resistant design and adaption to sea level rise; multidisciplinary design that integrates sound ecological and engineering principles; and innovative design and construction to protect and improve water security
