Using Design to Address Sea Level Rise
Published | May, 2017
Climate-change experts believe sea levels will likely rise 20-29 inches by the year 2100; some coastal areas may experience as much as a 6-foot rise. Since 40% of today’s US population lives on or near the water, this poses a serious threat. While government and community agencies are now addressing sea level rise issues, the architectural and engineering community has also begun to develop strategies and tactics to mitigate the effects of sea level rise. For new and/or existing buildings in coastal regions, resilient design and the use of materials that protect buildings from wind and water damage can make a difference.
