Abstract

The damages from meteorological events of the future are likely to increase with a changing climate, as rising sea levels coupled with the potential for intensified storms make flooding and storm-driven surges even larger threats to the region. Studying ways to adapt to this reality, the Rebuild by Design competition sponsored work towards a novel approach to ameliorating potential damages with an initiative called The Blue Dunes. Blue Dunes resulted from a process that facilitated dialogue between scientists and designers integrating science with the social art of planning in order to propose a way forward. The process itself and its benefits are discussed in this article.
