Sandy shores around the world suffer from coastal erosion due to land subsidence, a lack of sediment input and sea level rise. This often leads to the construction of hard structures, such as sea walls and breakwaters, that consolidate the coastal zone but disrupt the dynamic system of coastal deltas. To compensate for coastal erosion in a more...

The conservation of cultural heritage through its adaptive reuse contributes to the transition towards circular cities enhancing urban liveability and tackles challenges such as resource scarcity (UN SDG target 11.4) and waste prevention (UN SDG target 12.5). By regenerating heritage resources and maintaining their values over time, adaptive...

Climate change is increasingly being recognized as a threat to natural and cultural World Heritage (WH) sites worldwide. Through its interaction with other stressors, climate change accelerates existing risks while also creating new obstacles. A more considerable focus is needed in both research and practice to explore proactive measures for...

On the northwest urban edge of Miami Dade County, the mining industry of the largest scale in Florida has existed for over 60 years. However, it is estimated to stop by 2050 as the reserves decline. As a consequence of limestone mining, more than 10,000 hectares of abandoned lakes will be left on the landscape. This project proposes land and...

Hundreds of new towns are being built or planned today in China, which mostly remove the existing agricultural landscape. The study is motivated by a very simple question: instead of being eaten up by new towns, can agricultural landscape perform more actively in the process of development? I pick Guangming, a new town being built in Shenzhen,...
