Let The Water In: Strategies for a Resilient Edgemere
SES 840, Delta Cities Studio
Full project report can be accessed here.
Our vision for Edgemere in 2100 is one of social equity, ecological integrity, regenerative systems, and collective ownership. People leave by choice, relocate to higher ground, or adapt to a new way of living with water; all have a choice in a just and equitable transition. Those who remain become stewards of a place returning to nature, through revitalized marshes and environmental restoration. Advancements in agriculture and aquaculture become the focal points of a circular local economy, creating wealth and increasing social mobility.
