Abstract

The coastal landscape of South Florida faces many challenges connected to climate change and urbanization. Sea level rise, loss of ecosystems, land subsidence, aquifer depletion are some of the issues that need serious attention. Landscape Approach Florida is showcasing results of a Landscape Architecture Design Lab where seven MSc-graduates explored the possibilities of landscape-based approaches to address the challenges from an integral and multi-scale spatial design perspective. Students employed landscape-based systemic strategies and design interventions that facilitate the ecological restoration of wetlands, provide flood protection, and increase urban resilience through green-blue infrastructures.
