Co-Innovating for Integrated Research, Teaching, and Outreach in Sea Level Rise Adaptation

Approximately 680 million people live in low-lying coastal regions susceptible to flooding (IPCC 2019), and architects are positioned to drive wide-scale adoption of practical design solutions to address climate change impacts (AIA 2020). This paper describes innovative pedagogical approaches to integrate climate change into the architectural curricula in conjunction with funded applied research and community outreach to inform future climate change adaptation. The community-engaged scholarship, Envisioning Sea Level Rise Adaptation in Waikīkī, Hawai‘i and its parallel graduate architecture courses resulted in locally tailored architectural renderings, policy guidance, and visions that may inform future design and policy. The replicable research methods describe the processes, individuals, partnerships, and products for knowledge-sharing and coordinating climate change adaptation and resilience through interdisciplinary cocreation within academia and coordinated community input.
