The Future of False Creek is a design study into the effects of climate change, e.g. sea level rise and changes in precipitation patterns, on Vancouvers False Creek, its seawall and adjacent neighborhoods. Current climate science indicates that Vancouver is likely to see drier, hotter summers, more intense weather events involving wind, rain and snow, and the gradual rise of sea levels.
The Future of False Creek
The Hybrid Creek presents an option that combines a range of adaptation tools to demonstrate how new social and ecological programs and possibilities can emerge in the False Creek area over time. The proposal illustrates how sea level rise adaptation can be coupled with new urban developments, creation of public spaces, and ecological revitalization.
