The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has identified rising sea levels as one of the consequences of Climate Change and this leaves the UK’s low lying coastal regions vulnerable increased erosion and flooding. The soft edge low lying coastal landscapes across Britain will undergo significant threat as sea level rises. Indicators show this change is already having an effect not only on the land but also on communities. The severe winter storms of 2014 provided a catalyst for decision making and as a consequence of actions by Natural Resource Wales and Gynedd County Council the Mawddach Estuary and coastline in North Wales has been identified as a landscape in transition and a community in transit. Fairebourne 2070 investigates the potential of Landscape Architecture to capture the power of shifting sands, storm force winds, and ranging seas to set the stage for a new imagineered settlement of the future.
