FEATURES:
Atlanta and its neighbors in the Southeast seem to have settled into a permanent state of drought, but New York has the opposite problem: every year, the levels in the harbor rise. The two phenomena are flip sides of the same coin -- the inexorable and accelerating process of climate change, which presents a difficult set of problems for architects and urbanists. More and more firms are exploring ways to adapt to its effects and plan for the future. Jeff Byles explores why, when it comes to sustainability, blue is the new green.
