Chapter
Spatial design integrates social, cultural, economic, and political perspectives with natural site conditions and man-made construction to plan for sustainable urban development. The current flood-risk-related challenges induced by climate change place pressure on designing cities in which both natural and man-made conditions can be imbalanced. Cre...

The development of knowledge about the mechanism in the delta has had a high dependency on projects and techniques available. During the period from 1930 to 1939, there is a consolidation of the achievements and further development of hydraulic engineering techniques, based on model-based and mathematical analyses and prognoses (Schot et al., 1998)...

The relation between the design of the flood protection infrastructure and the design of the urbanscape is the focus of this paper with the question on how these two types of design can consciously affect each other. The text presents the preliminary result of an interdisciplinary research conducted by a team of urban designers and hydraulic engine...

Several major infrastructure projects and energy scenarios, developed in the Mediterranean basin between the 20th and 21st centuries, are described in this essay. In the first part, it is argued how, today, the Mediterranean, starting from the energy issue, has acquired a new pivotal role in the world geopolitical framework. The second part takes a...

In the twentieth century dams were the symbol of urban, agricultural and industrial progress; their construction has been essential to the growth of the population and its prosperity. Men have been building dams for 5,000 years. Altering millennial natural patterns and forcing entire native tribes to the exodus, 75,000 dams have been devised solely...
Conference Paper

Dams have been essential for the growth of population and its prosperity. Men have been building dams for 5,000 years. Last century, 75,000 dams have been built in the United States. It has been estimated that by 2020 the 85% of those barriers will reach the end of the designed life-span. Over the past 30 years approximately 900 dams have been remo...

Project
https://www.sarcc.eu The overall objective of SARCC (Sustainable and Resilient Coastal Cities) is to help mainstream nature-based solutions (NBS) into coastal management and policy making, whether that is as stand-alone projects or NBS-hybrids, where they are integrated into existing grey infrastructure and flood defences. The project will build the capacity of urban leaders, decision-makers and officers involved in coastal flood defences to deploy NBS and understand the additional benefits that they offer in comparison to traditional grey infrastructure.
Project
http://all-risk-program.nl The current flood-risk related challenges induced by climate change place pressure on designing urban areas where natural and man-made conditions can be imbalanced. This project output enlightens new possible synergies between flood protection infrastructure and urban landscape through the role of integrated design.
