For ever adaptive…

Climate Change is a topic, which will stay with us for a long time. Because we cannot bring climate change to a standstill, one way or another we need to adapt our cities and landscapes to future change. This change is, however, uncertain and this is the reason why adaptation needs to be an on-going process of spatial change. Our cities need to be prepared for these continuous changing impacts, demands and surprises. This can only be done if the spatial representation of planning and design is dynamic and flexible as well. The city mustn’t be adapted once, but become adaptive forever. CITTAIDEALE is an expert in designing these flexible plans and makes use of the Swarm Planning methodology, which is based on the rules of nature and the flocking behaviour of swarms. CITTAIDEALE has designed, amongst others, the Floodable Landscape, a Climate Proof Groningen, a Bushfire Resilient Bendigo, Climate Adaptive Sea Lake, Australia, the Double Defence Plan for coastal protection, an energy supplying coastal defence in Minamisoma, Japan, and SFBDNA, a design for a climate adaptive Bay area in San Francisco.
