NORTH BEACH VILLAGE | FT. LAUDERDALE, FL
A phased, strategy in addressing urban street infrastructure sought to evolve the paved paradise from a hard landscape into a soft, low-impact infrastucture. Using natural design strategies such as rain gardens help mitigate the issues in the neighborhood involved with sea-level rise and flooding.
This project was a combination of urban design strategy to address street design in the flooding neighborhood of North Beach Village located along Fort Lauderdale Beach. A â€œpixelatedâ€? approach to the design allowed the landscape to evolve over time in phases, and gave a flexibility and modularity to the design.
