Flood Resilient Architecture

The exhibition explores how architecture is having to adapt to a growing climate reality: urban flooding. A recent RIBA report shows that 1 in 6 UK homes are currently vulnerable to flooding, with that number expected to double by 2050. With water causing an average of £1.4 billion of damage each year to UK businesses and households, architecture has to start helping us ‘live with water’, since prevention measures are simply proving inadequate.

Sea Change showcases projects by leading architects around the world in the field of flood resilient architecture. Solutions include: working with nature by developing floating buildings; improving flood barriers and turning them into recreational space; and elevating a range of public and private buildings.
