‘Salty Urbanism’ Wins Two AIA Design Awards

AIA Florida awarded Salty Urbanism: A Sea Level Rise Adaptation Framework for Urban Areas the 2017 Merit Award for Unbuilt Design and AIA Fort Lauderdale awarded it the 2017 Unbuilt Project of the Year, the highest honor bestowed on unbuilt work. Salty Urbanism is a research platform directed by Assistant Professor Jeffrey Huber, an interdisciplinary collaboration between FAU and the City of Fort Lauderdale, and is funded through a Florida Sea Grant. Salty Urbanism creates a framework for adaptation strategies at the scale of the neighborhood, block, and street, which couples ecological water management, landscape architecture, architecture, urban design, and infrastructure design.
