Smart Building and Community Design


30 May: Developing design flood elevations and envisioning sea-level rise adaptation strategies for a densely developed coastal community, Waikīkī, Hawai‘i for improved outcomes for communities, economy, and the stewardship of marine resources

PI: Wendy Meguro
Sea-level rise is a critical issue worldwide, and Hawaiʻi faces billions of dollars in losses of land and structures, particularly in Waikīkī, the economic hub of Hawai‘i’s tourism industry. This project continues efforts to inform policy on the future built environment, and produce, with public input, improved conceptual architectural renderings of building SLR adaptation.
