dc.description.abstract Contained in this book is the Adaptive Design Thesis. In this book you will find the thoughts that created the idea for the project, the process of the design, and the final solutions to the thesis.This book is sectioned into three parts. The first part of this book is the ideas and concepts behind the selection of the projects and assumptions behind them. In the first part of this book it informs the reader that the problem to be dealt with is natural conditions that people in these areas generally do not take into count when they build. Basically it talks about how the natural elements of an area or areas need to be taken into account when a site is selected and a building is constructed. It also tells how Indiana river flooding, Florida hurricanes, and New Orleans levees breaking were selected.The second part of this book is the design concept, process, and final design. This section is broken into three parts. Each of these parts deals with a specific site and area. Within each of these projects it is further broken down into specific solutions. The Indiana solution is moving up, the Florida solution is closing up, and the New Orleans solution is lifting up. Inside each section explains how each site was selected and the process that led me to the final design.The final part of this book is the conclusion section. This part of the book describes the final solutions and three applications. Which in this section is jut a condensed version of all the projects to reiterate the final solutions which. The solutions are “Move up, Close up, Lift up”. This section also contains the bibliography.
