Resilient by Design: Bay Area Challenge is a collaborative research and design project based on the successful model of the Rebuild by Design Hurricane Sandy Competition that will bring 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.
In a yearlong challenge, teams of engineers, architects, designers and other experts will work alongside community members to identify critical areas throughout the Bay Area and propose exciting, new, community-based solutions that will strengthen our region’s resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes.
The result will be 10 new implementable projects that offer an imaginative approach to resilience by not just taking on protecting our shoreline, but by seizing the critical need to address climate change as an opportunity to bring about a stronger, safer Bay for everyone to enjoy.
