Goals and Objectives

Goals

Students will develop an understanding of smart building, building with nature, and approaches to smart building that were historically and are presently used for flood control, hazard mitigation, and risk/energy reduction.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

  • understand the benefits of building with nature, and distinguish smart building approaches;
  • implement smart building approaches to aid in the expansion of one city that is threatened by sea level rise and storms, and employ building with nature and layered defense approaches in the design;
  • integrate concepts of resiliency and coastal flood protection through massive nourishments, and how these new methods are setting trends in smart building along coastlines.
