This book presents the final research report and design proposal by the All Bay Collective (ABC) for the Resilient by Design (RBD), a year-long collaborative design challenge that “brought together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative community-based solutions that will strengthen our region’s resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes.” ABC asked how designing for resilience might require us to think differently about the way resources and places are shared.
