Resilient Coastal Leisure Environments

A team of researchers in Portugal, Croatia, and Boston have been considering how future tourism development might better be leveraged to create more resilient coastal environments, using Algarve and Dalmatia as comparative case studies. This project, titled Estudo Comparativo para a Reabilitacao Urbana PT_HR Algarve-Dalmacia [Comparative Study of Urban Rehabilitation in the Algarve, Portugal and Dalmatia, Croatia], has been further studied through a year-long research studio at Northeastern University entitled Resilient Coastal Leisure Environments.

On Wednesday, March 13, the Northeastern University School of Architecture held a one day symposium which included professionals, scholars, and graduate students working on related issues to this project. This symposium utilized a series of contemporary projects in various stages of completion to frame broader issues of tourism development and urban resilience.
