Sea-City Interface Symposium
November 27 @ 8:00 am - November 28 @ 5:00 pm
The Sea-City Interface Symposium will explore the sea-city fringes of swiftly urbanizing cities, where land and sea interact. The world is aware of the danger of increasing shocks and stresses caused by climate change and extreme CO2 emissions. Demographic studies suggest that urban population growth is spiking in tropical coastal areas; roads, airports, and ports render these areas prime locations. This combination of environmental, demographic, and logistical components puts an exceptional strain on where urban evolution and the oceans meet: the sea-city interface.
The symposium will inspect three focal points: measures to reduce climate change and its consequences through regenerative urban design and architecture, environmental science, and building biomimicry technology to take in, retain, store, and withdraw CO2 from the atmosphere; nature-based techniques to reduce the effects of seawater ascent through urban design and biophilia pertaining to water-conscious design; and the financial sides of the sea-city interface, looking at how to combine time-honored manufacturing roles in the area with creative developments for a hybrid economy that can aid diverse industries and increase liveability. The Sea-City Interface International Symposium is a platform for students and professionals in architecture and urban design/planning from across the world to join to collaborate in tackling climate change through regenerative design.
