Engaged Curriculum Grants

Climate-Adaptive Design in the Community

Closely engaging stakeholders with a cross-course collaboration that inspires awareness of climate adaptation and design innovation.

Landscape architects and engineers often collaborate in practice and engage stakeholders during project development, but the overlap rarely occurs during academic training. This cross-course collaboration brings together students from a landscape architecture studio course and a watershed engineering course to work with municipalities along the Hudson River and explore design alternatives for developing more climate-resilient waterfronts. Students grasp big-picture climate concerns while working with diverse stakeholders to develop detailed, site-specific design responses to flooding and other hazards. Meanwhile, small, resource-constrained municipalities receive design and technical support that will generate alternative strategies for future development and catalyze support for climate adaptation.
