Flood Research Center
More InformationShow full item record
This project will outline research into the flood prevention methods in nature and in the man-made world to translate into a new innovative inland flood research center design in Moorhead, Minnesota. This project was in response to the widespread flooding epidemic in the various regions of North Dakota. I hope to give dwellers in flood prone areas a chance to dwell in harmony with nature’s natural events. The 8000 square foot research facility’s main function is to re-establish the wetlands to allow water to have space to expand and retract. The expansion of wetlands will reduce the fast paced runoff from fields and concrete hardscapes of cities to safe manageable rates.
