Exploring possibilities for encouraging flood resilience in Binghamton, New York
MetadataShow full item record
Binghamton, New York is one of the many cities along the Susquehanna River experiencing increasingly large flood events, causing high levels of damage to the area. This thesis explores the possibilities for encouraging flood resilience and how this resilience would affect urban land use change as well as community amenities. Exploration was conducted through a thorough analysis of the city as a whole followed by projective designs and design analysis. The result of this exploration suggests Binghamton has potential for increasing its flood resilience through floodable areas with limitations.
