This book is a design research platform which includes essays and design proposals from the international design ideas competition ReSTITCH TAMPA. Discourse framed by the underlying themes of the competition, examines (re) designing the city with natural systems, addressing climate change and sea level rise and designing for resiliency. The project envisions a new design for the city's civic realm through connective urban landscape hybridized with ecological infrastructure which (re)stitches the city back to its river.
