Resilient by Design - The Grand Bayway

The Common Ground Team led by TLS Landscape Architecture presented a vision for a “Grand Bayway” at the Resilient by Design Challenge in San Francisco, on May 17th.

The proposal looks at a resilient future for flood-threatened and congested State Route 37 connecting the northern edge of San Francisco Bay as well as adjacent tidal complexes and restored marshes. The result would be a new Ecological Central Park larger than San Francisco.

The project proposes to resolve the transportation problem of Highway 37 by designing a scenic causeway elevated on columns 20 feet high, allowing tidal flows and marsh migration to return to their natural condition.
