PDH LUNCHEON: Living Seawalls

Presentation Description:

Kind Designs is a Miami based startup, 3D-Printing Living Seawalls. Living Seawalls are structurally identical to concrete slabs (same PSI, same installation methods, same dimensions), but also function like artificial reefs and dissipate wave energy. Living Seawalls designs are based on biomimicry design principles. In South Florida, the panels mimic mangrove roots which create caves for sealife to hide from predators and have a special rugosity for smaller organisms to attach. We’re working with local government entities on creating incentives for Living Seawalls, including reduced rip-rap, increased width maximum and expedited permitting.
