Bay Area Challenge

Protecting local sites vulnerable to sea-level rise

This year-long collaborative design challenge brought together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative community-based solutions to strengthen the Bay Area’s resilience to sea-level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes. See the final designs of the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge, which connected internationally-renowned experts with local communities to inspire innovation and catalyze designs, ideas and collaboration toward a more resilient future.
