Inviting Flooding into Urban Space
Most cities are not prepared for a time when they will need to live with flooding. Cities currently fight water and force it out of the city or keep it hidden in pipes underground. These solutions will not work in a world changed by global warming. My senior thesis attempts to find a solution to help Charleston, South Carolina to learn to be harmonious with water and make it an asset rather than a liability, mitigating water’s destructive force and bringing many benefits to the community.
