Living in the deep polders in the deltaic landscape of the Netherlands poses large-scale challenges. Biodiversity decline, weather extremes, sea level rise, salination, the housing crisis, and subsidence affect large parts of the Netherlands. These challenges should be tackled together through the integral question of ‘what does the area need?’...

Flooding is one of the most destructive climate disasters. Since the 21st century, the United States, Thailand, China, and many other countries have been hit by flash floods, which not only exposed the vulnerability of the urban system expansively but also serves as an opportunity to promote resilient city construction. The research begins by...

What long ago started as a small fishing village, seeking refuge from the Romans, slowly evolved into the city of Venice that we know today. With its unique location came unique problems, most of which were related to the interplay between Venice and its lagoon. By severe measures in the past it has continued to withstand the test of time. <br/...

The current approach in riverine climate adaptation strategies aims to accommodate all functionalities of rivers into one singular riverbed, but runs into the limitations of an integrated spatial system. The research shows that the different functionalities of rivers, i.e. the different riverine regimes, in synchronization will lead to a decline...

An interdisciplinary approach of the building process is needed in order to achieve a more resilient outcome. The aim within this paper will therefore be about the implementation of GreenBlue infrastructure with Open Building to strive for a circular water cycle within the built environment. The following topics have been investigated in order...

In the United Kingdom spatial challenges are formed due to a significant erosion rate, especially on the southeast coastline, where the soil has a weak resistance to erosion (Masselink &amp; Russell, 2013; Hurst et al, 2016). This erosion causes the soil to be washed away until no soil remains (Dornbush et al, 2006). Ecology, society and urban...

Climate change is affecting the urban environment in the Netherlands, which increases the risks of droughts, floods, waterlogging, and heatwaves. Consequently, the cities we build many years ago are not resilient to climate change in the long run. In response the national government created the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation (DPRA) to adapt to...
