RECOVERY AND RESILIENCE
JUST AS THE SUDDEN, HISTORIC FLOODS OF 2017 AND 2018 ARRIVED HOUSE BY HOUSE and street by street, the rebuilding of neighborhoods in places like hurricane-battered Houston and flash-flooded Iowa City has unfolded almost entirely at the personal scale of the family home. At its best, this up-close work of recovery has made future storm resilience a top priority - and that's the focus of the CATEGORY-5 STORM DEFENSE HOUSE.
HOUSTON'S EXPERIENCE WITH HURRICANE HARVEY in 2017 underlined the need for better answers to high water than constantly repairing damp, moldy homesteads - not only in Texas, but across the country. Certainly, as extreme weather becomes more common, those answers will include large public works and more regulations. But a critical factor is that, like Houston, most American cities are, and fundamentally will remain places of modest-scale houses and neighborhoods. Towns all across the United States witnessed, and now share Houston’s painful, drawn-out experience of flood and recovery. None will fully revive without renewing the family home's promise of security, still widely at risk from dangerous weather.
