“This book assesses and illustrates innovative and practical worldwide measures for combating sea level rise from the profession of landscape architecture. The work explores how the appropriate mixture of integrated, multi-scalar flood protection mechanisms can reduce risks associated with flood events including sea level rise.”
The Netherlands is one of the case studies that illustrate structural, non-structural and hybrid measures that can be taken to address sea level rise, which are categorized into design-based typologies. Anne Loes Nillesen and Mona zum Felde elaborate on the development and exploration of long-term orientations for addressing accelerated sea-level rise in research-by-design studies. That includes the potential water system and land use impacts of the formulated orientations for flood risk protection (also including accommodation, coastal advancement, and strategic retreat). In addition, two local scale design studies are illustrated (greater Amsterdam Region and Western Scheldt area) that demonstrate how these conceptual orientations can be applied while simultaneously improving spatial quality.
