Title: San Francisco’s Eastside Resilience through Fluid Adaptation across Time, Space, and Scale
Time: Noon on October 5, 2017
Location: 5th Floor Conference Room, 30 Van Ness
Speaker: Hope Hui Rising, PhD, PLA
Dr. Hope Hui Rising will be presenting to the San Francisco Sea Level Rise Adaptation Committee. The presentation will focus on fluid adaptation as a main approach for providing flexible resilience to San Francisco’s Eastside communities across time, space, and scale. Hope and the Adaptive Water Urbanism Initiative used this approach to propose several resilience master plans for the entire Eastside, the Embarcadero, and the communities between the Islais Creek and Mission Creek based on the results of the interviews and design game workshops conducted with residents, city staff, experts, and high school students. These master plans have been reviewed for comments and supported by the public and experts through a series of presentations at the Bay Area Council, the Bay Observatory at the Exploratorium, Potrero Hill Public Library, the Public Utilities Commission, and the San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Associations.
