Seminar: Honolulu Living Shorelines: Resilience and Connectivity by Design

Judith Stilgenbauer, ASLA Professor & Master of Landscape Architecture Program Director School of Architecture University of Hawai'i at Mānoa The applied design research presented in this seminar highlights the role of landscape architecture and large-scale green infrastructure systems in the creation of flood-resilient urban waterfronts. Focusing on three flood-prone catalytic sites, all located in Honolulu’s primary urban center, the presentation visualizes speculative long-term design proposals that introduce nature-based, “soft” coastal adaptation strategies aimed to decrease waterfront vulnerabilities. More broadly, this guest lecture advocates for the anticipation of coastal climate challenges, such as multi-hazard flooding in near-shore development, through innovative ecological
