Better design can help us build safely in flood zones


This is a really important article, we should be getting really serious about floating architecture in the UK, and not just in Henley on Thames! I'm not sure the solution shown here would work in Fishlake. We also shouldn't lose sight of how we can use permeable surfaces and retention ponds to both protect our own sites and not damage other areas through what we design. Flood protection is far too simplistic in itself, we need mitigation as well such as reforesting hillsides or we are just pushing the problems onto our neighbours
