This book examines what occurs when we let the cycles of mother nature take precedent in the way we design through responsive creation of a small community on the banks of the Red River. As architects in the 21st century, we have the ability to reclaim and successfully redevelop river sites that are responsive to time. In response to overall rising water levels world wide, and to the increasing trend in extremely high annual floods locally, a solution to not fight against the water, but live in harmony with it becomes apparent. What we have done so far does not work and technology allows us to explore the idea of reclaiming the river sites for a successful design of a small community.
