Imagining a wet(ter) future, the project explores how landscape strategies can generate adaptive and dynamic livable spaces in the Bengal Delta coastline. The coastal area will gradually loose much of its land under the sea, forming a series of new islands due to sea-level rise. Millions of climate change refugees have begun to migrate to higher land, however it has been predicted that by the year 2100 approximately 5 million people will continue to live in the coastal delta. How can the local traditions be adapted so people can inhabit the future landscape of the delta? Finding itself placed upon an island in the delta, the project investigates the interplay between protective-productive landscapes, transportation infrastructure and urbanity.
