DDR Statement

For urban spatial design research related to sea-level rise without many existing studies, I believe the methodology of "From Experimental Design to Theory" will have great potential. In addition to a literature review of the theory, this research studies and analyzes the projects under construction, competition projects, theoretical design. Then, the "resilience zone" theoretical model is used as the basis for the experimental design practice of three cities: New York, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. The theory will be further extracted, formed, and solidified by proposing, analyzing, and solving the difficulties and problems encountered in practical design, i.e., resilient coastal urban space design strategies in response to sea-level rise.
