The Second International Conference on Amphibious Architecture, Design and Engineering
In the last 20 years, the 10 worst floods around the world have displaced over 1.1 billion people and resulted in damages of over $165 billion.
ICAADE 2017 will unite academics, practitioners, professionals and policy-makers in the exchange of knowledge on amphibious flood mitigation strategies, inviting collaboration among researchers, businesses, institutions, and governments around the world. Flood mitigation and climate change adaptation will require the development of new housing types and retrofit strategies in order to maintain community integrity in populated regions where flooding is expected to increase.
The conference will create collaboration among architects, planners, builders, researchers, engineers, and participants from government and industry, representing a broad range of disciplines such as water management, urban and landscape design, hydraulic engineering, social sciences, humanities, building construction, education and health, and experts from such fields as commerce, policy, information systems, and knowledge management.
