By examining past examples of how we inhabit the coast, we can begin to imagine how we look to create resilience for the future. By identifying fragile settlements on the North Sea earlier in the research, this project looks to how we can no longer expect to keep the water out and adapting for environmental and industrial change. The project explores resilient versions of OS mapping icons, such as a lighthouse and housing, for settlements identified as fragile, acting as a guide to how other fragile settlements could look to the future. The resilient rural uses Thorngumbald, Hull, as a case study for developing the resilient OS map symbols in a specific setting, incorporating local vernacular and contextual issues to form a unique response to the problems. Principles for resilience include having multi-functional elements, re-using materials, making it local and phased development. We cannot avoid climate change with the current built environment soon becoming unfit for inhabitation. We must consider how we will live with the water.
