Lectures will present a diversity of topics as they relate to research and design for resilient urban systems in the face of sea level rise. The lectures are part of a course that provides an innovative and creative platform to work collaboratively across disciplines to design and produce sea level solutions that are at once functional and visionary in their approach, in addition to serving as a model for our region and beyond. The focal project is located in North Miami Beach. Lectures are free & open to the public.
