Miami faces a great challenge: sea level rise. In the presence of hurricanes – single events, whose sometimes catastrophic impact can suddenly change the looks of a whole territory – the project proposes a variety of strategies designed to maintain and protect the state of balance – social, economic, political and cultural – as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, to address the slow and gradual phenomenon of sea level rise, the project aims to prefigure the evolution of the context, proposing adaptive methods and replicable architectural-landscape strategies along the Florida coast: a systemic model able to mitigate the effects of rising sea levels and offer energy solutions compatible with the new context that will be emerging.
