Abstract

This project uses western Galveston Island, Texas, USA to explore design options for integrating a projective storm surge barrier system into the coastal landscape. The design creates a comprehensive master plan by using four target sites on the island, develops design strategies for barrier integration, and suggests principles for successful integration.

Keywords Storm Surge      Hurricanes      Resilience      Landscape Ecology      Flood Attenuation
