The second International Conference on Amphibious Architecture, Design and Engineering – hosted by Water Institute member and associate professor Elizabeth English – took place June 25-28, and brought together academics, practitioners, professionals and policymakers to discuss amphibious architecture.

Floods mean havoc for millions of people every year. With climate change bringing more extreme storms and rising seas, the danger of flooding is sure to increase in coming years, putting millions of lives and billions of dollars of property at risk.

Professor English spoke about the conference, and her work developing homes that can ride above the flood waters, in The Record
