How can we build a resilient city?

06/07/2016 - New urban trends

As a port on the Eastern seaboard, Boston is particularly exposed to anticipate global warming and rising sea levels. Although not affected by Hurricane Sandy, the city is well aware of the risks at hand, and has chosen to make resilience one of its priorities. In this film, Senior Waterfront Planner for the Boston Redevelopment Authority Chris Busch discusses the city’s various responses. Consultation with local stakeholders and modular buildings are just some of the projects implemented by the city in order to live with, rather than against, water.
