Resilient by Design Selects The Home Team

Date Posted: 09.15.2017

We are pleased to announce that The Home Team, led by Mithun, was selected as one of ten international teams to address the Resilient by Design challenge for San Francisco Bay.

Resilient by Design is a year-long journey to foster collaboration and leadership around the issues of sea level rise and resilience with particular attention to elevating the knowledge of and participation by people most vulnerable to displacement.

The Home Team was assembled to explore affordability as a driver of deep transformation, and to leverage multiple benefits that can emerge when a design approach is co-created through the lens of home. Our team’s conceptual approach is rooted in an urban ecology of equitable bioregionalism. We propose re-envisioning our home as interdependent and a contributing component of the Bay’s natural systems. We seek to heal divisions and cultivate solutions, based on shared values, assets and vulnerabilities.

Collaborating team members share global and local knowledge and the values of interdependence: Streetwyze, Chinatown Community Development Corporation, Biohabitats, Integral Group, Moffatt & Nichol, HR&A Advisors, Alta Planning + Design, Urban Biofilter and the Resilient Design Institute.

We are honored to be part of this tremendous cohort of design leaders seeking proactive solutions and we look forward to sharing our discoveries along the way. To see regular updates and share your thoughts, follow The Home Team on Instagram: @mithun_hometeam_rbd.
