Coastal regions around the world are rapidly urbanizing at a time when environmental change increasingly threatens these ecologically critical areas. Galveston Island, recently devastated by Hurricane Ike, offers a case-study for how such cities need to transform and adopt alternative strategies for resilience in the coming century. This book, the result of a trans-disciplinary collaboration at Rice University presents an atlas of such strategies, examining the scientific factors operating in the coastal environment of the Gulf Coast, related urban ecologies, and offering design examples that project alternative futures for urbanization on Galveston Island and other coastal communities.
