This research explores the design of a flood resilent coastal settlement in Par Docks, Cornwall. It's a town that remains open to the sea whilst safe from it. Par Docks, one of the most important coastal development sites in England was chosen as the vehicle for researching this project. The study explores the design of a town that inhabits the interstitial space between land and sea, enabling increased interaction with the waters edge, whilst also facilitating a long term strategy for managed realignment.
