Resilient Design: Coexist with Urban Flooding

Location: Coolibah Reserve, 54 Hannam St, Bardwell Valley NSW 2207, Australia. Size: 3.79 ha. Client: Bayside Council. In view of the increasingly serious urban flood problems, resilient design becomes one of the most popular concepts at present. Adaptive capacity is the essence of resilient design in complex urban context, and the adaptive design for building adaptive ability becomes one of the important strategies of resilient design. The project aims to create a resilient place that can coexist with floods, focusing on the ecology and human activities during and after floods, and creating a multi-functional park that adapts to the life of surrounding communities based on restoration, drainage and utilization. As flood is a dynamic event, "coexistence" with it should also be analyzed dynamically, so the design language of this project is broken down into "Restore and treat" in the absence of floods, "Intercept and retain" in the event of floods, and "Adapt and use" after floods.
