Resilient by Design Challenge: Elevate San Rafael, May 2018 

This project was part of a year-long collaborative design challenge that brought residents, public officials and other experts together to develop innovative solutions to strengthen the Bay Area’s resilience to sea level rise, storms, flooding, and earthquakes.

The Elevate San Rafael project envisioned a new future for the San Rafael waterfront that not only physically elevated infrastructure and development but also raises the quality of life and social connection for everyone. Design solutions addressed near-term needs directly and offered a long-term strategy for large-scale resilience. The proposal framed necessary policy and finance mechanisms to guide change in an equitable way.
