About the Project:

The Giving Delta proposal, developed for the multidisciplinary design competition Changing Course, outlines a bold, yet implementable solution to the existential threat of land loss and climate change currently facing coastal Louisiana. The proposal introduces controlled flooding, and relocates and realigns Port facilities and the River Channel itself, ensuring sediment is deposited permanently into the littoral zone.
