The Soft Edge

  • Listen

    How do we protect ourselves and our properties from storm surge and sea level rise? Last week we discussed the hard edge strategy of dikes, dams, gates and walls as barriers to the ocean. This week we continue our series with The Soft Edge, offering examples of more flexible ways to absorb the ocean's powerful force. The Soft Edge is part 2 of a 7-part series dedicated to the ocean edge, exploring what takes place there, from the real to the symbolic.
