We source, analyze, and visualize global and local datasets in an effort to identify and communicate complex and interconnected risks.  For example, we visualize:

  • Interconnected shocks and stresses in urban landscapes
  • Land-sea interface analysis
  • Ecosystem loss and social vulnerability
  • Urban growth trends


We synthesize knowledge from the critical analysis of past projects and the processes that delivered them. Case studies can include:

  • Project summaries and lessons learned
  • Implementation strategies of existing policies and projects (e.g., funding framework, engagement strategy, O/M plan)
  • Topical packages of cases (e.g., resilient transportation projects)


We model the interaction of multiple variables over time to help stakeholders understand long-term impacts of projects at multiple scales. Scenarios can include:

  • Site documentation and stakeholder interviews
  • Conceptual project and site strategies
  • Visualizations of potential project impacts
  • Projective project design criteria development


We design, organize, and facilitate research- and design-driven workshops to build consensus and create an enabling environment for decision-making. Workshop delivery can consist of:

  • Workshop agenda and facilitation guide development
  • Participant pre-reader and bibliography
  • Participant list development support
  • Access to global network of experts
  • In-person workshop facilitation


We generate reports and visual communications tools that synthesize actions needed to advance project design and implementation as determined by workshop stakeholders. These plans can consist of:

  • Workshop synthesis and decision-making frameworks
  • Synthesis of research materials
  • Visualization of design directions


We review existing plans, projects, and policies for resilience benefits and impacts.

  • Analysis of project preparation documents such as RFPs
  • Review and feedback of conceptual plans and principles
