A Biomimetic Approach For Resilient Design

River Delta Urban Design


For this development on a river delta, B+H Architects assessed the many “zones” of floral and faunal suites on the landscape and provided strategies for how to passively integrate into the dynamic nature of those zones. Following a full Living Story site assessment, the concept master plan was developed based on an organic grid that matched the existing zones to improve the site’s adaptability over time and therefore reduce maintenance costs. A canal network that functions as a community feature and stormwater management system were also proposed, along with a Wetland Discovery Centre to create a regional attraction.
