Design for flooding: architecture, landscape and urban design for resilience to flooding and climate change

Source(s):  Wiley-Blackwell (Wiley)

This book presents good practices and lessons learned in order to create buildings and communities that are more resilient in the face of severe weather, climate change, and the prospect of rising sea level. It addresses architects, urban planners, and urban designers, as well as water resources engineers and landscape architects.

The book covers technical and institutional issues—along with new design and business opportunities—built upon: fundamentals of climate and weather, storm-water and floodplain management; best practices of flood-resistant design and adaptation to sea level rise; multidisciplinary design that integrates sound ecological and engineering principles; innovative design and construction to protect and improve water security.
