Sea Change: Flood Resilient Architecture for the 21st Century


This timely exhibition explores how architecture is having to adapt to a growing climate reality: urban flooding. A recent RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) report shows that 1 in 6 UK homes are currently vulnerable to flooding, with that number expected to double by 2050. With water causing an average of £1.4 billion of damage each year to UK businesses and households, architecture has to start helping us 'live with water', since prevention measures are simply proving inadequate.

Sea Change showcases projects – proposed and realised – by leading architects around the world in the field of flood resilient architecture. Solutions include: working with nature by developing floating buildings; improving flood barriers and turning them into recreational space; and elevating a range of public and private buildings.
