In April and May MoDDD students were joined by Master of Landscape Architecture students on two field trips examining climate adaptation strategies for Elwood, a bayside suburb in Melbourne and Hoi An in Vietnam.
Design concepts for a climate change adaptation strategy developed by MoDDD students during Vietnam Field trip.
MoDDD students Nikhila Madabhushi (left) and Heidi McCulloch develop a vulnerability analysis map of the area between Hoi An old town, the river and the coast.
Students at Elwood Canal: Field work included a panel with field experts to explore the wider catchment, understand where some of the other solutions lie and an opportunity to understand and analyse catchment-based water sensitive asset and urban planning.
Lalitha Ramachandran illustrates the adaptive pathway planning approach in rethinking Elwood as a canal estate as students engage in topics that surround coastal buffer zones, flood resilient built form/housing, and transportation access.
