The study investigates highly modified lowlands - the intersection of water and land in coastal cities and their role as 'early warning territories' for the threat of rising water levels. They are concurrently and problematically, important zones for contemporary urban growth and re-development. The study develops alternative water sensitive design tactics, provoked by incremental modification of topographies and water infrastructure to adjust the lowlands to combined pressures of sea-level rise and urban growth in urbanised lowlands of coastal cities.
