Architects and designers must take into account ways in which buildings and cityscapes must be resilient in the face of climate change. This field of research is dynamic and quickly-evolving, and students and faculty at the SoA have the opportunity to learn in an environment that is adapting to the changing reality brought on by our warming climate. Research in this area focuses on how buildings and cities can be designed or adapted to strengthen their resilience in the face of sea level rise and other related challenges that coastal regions face, and will increasingly face, due to climate change.
