Principal Jamie Phillips is presenting Urban Design for Coastal Flooding: A Landscape-led Design Strategy. This presentation offers a new strategy for adapting to future flooding in coastal cities using landforms that guide the mixing of seawater, stormwater, and groundwater. Jamie, along with her co-presenters, developed this strategy using an explicitly “landscape-led” approach while participating in the San Francisco Bay Area Resilient by Design Challenge.
Senior Associate Pamela Conrad is bringing an emerging leader perspective as moderator for a panel discussion entitled Climate Action – Now!. The panel is comprised of inspiring individuals representing climate change initiatives from leading landscape architecture organizations – ASLA, IFLA, and LAF.
