Fall BE Studio: Coastal Adaptation with the Shoalwater BayTribe – info session May 23

View Flyer

 This 2022 / 2023 interdisciplinary BE studio will collaborate with the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe on the Pacific coast to advance the Tribe’s upland expansion in anticipation of sea level rise, erosion, tsunamis and other changes exacerbated by climate change. This collaboration will address Tribal priorities for resilience, and will integrate the Tribe’s cultural identity, needs, and ongoing concerns into strategies that will support a sense of cultural continuity.

 This studio will explore an array of culturally-appropriate and technologically innovative strategies that advance the Tribe’s existing planning priorities –e.g. resilient green buildings, green infrastructure, edible trails, food sovereignty and health & well-being -to reassert long-term cultural identification with place. We will collaborate both in Seattle and on the coast. 

If you are interested in participatory design and community collaborations for social and climate justice, we invite you to join our Information Session: Monday, May 23, 12 – 1 pm Gould Hall – room 110
