The Southeast Florida Climate Change Compact (Compact) continues its work finding design solutions for South Florida communities which take changing climate impacts into account.
The first collaboration in 2014 brought together Compact partners and the Dutch Consulate in Miami. In 2015 the Compact partnered with the Florida Climate Institute (FCI), with the specific engagement of Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University and the University of Miami.
Each workshop identified three South Florida sites and a corresponding team of experts and stakeholders
including water managers, architects, engineers, parks managers, planners, hydrologists, and engineers.
Teams visited their sites to learn about cultural, economic, social, historic, topographic, elevation, infrastructure and building stock considerations.
A charrette-style format allowed each team to propose designs for a more resilient community, which were then presented to the public on the final day of the work shop.
On Thursday, November 17 at UM School of Architecture,
Resilient Redesign III will present solutions for sites in
Lower Matecumbe Key / Monroe County and Shorecrest and Arch Creek / Miami-Dade. For the first time, students from FAU and UM will be involved. Learn more
