Change is Coming: Pre-adaptability for a Resilient City

Ava Omidvar’s thesis tackles the natural and human-made disasters that have shaped civilizations for centuries, and the increased frequency and intensity brought on by climate change. “For many cities around the world, where landscapes are being permanently affected by climate-induced landscape change, the built environment has the responsibility to adapt. How can architecture allow for change over time?” she asks. In this thoughtful presentation, Omidvar examines how cities can adapt and rebuild for a world “living with water.”
