Studio Outside’s “Storm + Sand + Sea + Strand?Barrier Island Resiliency Planning for Galveston Island State Park” predicts severe land loss due to sea level rise by 2060. Image courtesy of Studio Outside/Google Earth.
Studio Outside?s resiliency plan for Galveston Island State Park earned a 2017 ASLA Professional Award for Analysis and Planning, drawing praise from the jury for its comprehensive and forward-looking anticipation of the havoc a hurricane could release. But Studio Outside?s Andrew Duggan and his team knew they were pondering ironclad eventualities, not hypothetical disasters.
Because over the weekend, the city of Galveston and Galveston Island State Park to its southwest found themselves in the path of Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall at on Friday night, a Category 4 storm that has prompted mass evacuations of the Houston region.
Studio Outside?s project, ?Storm + Sand + Sea + Strand: Barrier Island Resiliency Planning for Galveston Island State Park,? tracks the loss of habitat and land as perpetuated by sea level rise, encroaching development, and hurricane flooding. It prescribes soft and green natural barriers to storm surges, assisted by flexible infrastructure. As a barrier island bordered by Texas? West Bay to the northwest and the Gulf of Mexico to the southeast, there are few places to hide from floodwaters or to absorb them, and even less given that this part of the island was partially paved over to accommodate RVs in the 1970s. On Friday, Duggan (based safely in Dallas) and members of his design team (Mike Fraze of Studio Outside, and Jennifer Dowdell and Ed Morgereth Biohabitats) emailed LAM some thoughts on how the storm might play out for Galveston Island State Park. ****Post will be updated as the storm progresses through Galveston****
 What happened to Galveston Island State Park in 2008 with Hurricane Ike" How was the island affected" How was it damaged"
Mike Fraze: The entire site was inundated with over eight feet of storm surge and the result was complete devastation. It seemed that half of the beach side campsites were simply gone, and the other half were covered in sand or broken [into] pieces.  Roads buckled and utilities were uprooted.
Ironically, this level of destruction created two phenomena: [It] recalibrated the lens of park planning in coastal environments by proving that buttressing and fighting mother nature does not work, and a reconsideration of best practices was required. And [it created] a relatively clean slate to [re-envision] this park.  The planning process was a rare opportunity to literally rebuild from the ground up.  [The] Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and the planning team seized the chance to rebuild with a natural system resiliency mindset.
What are the biggest risks to the island and Galveston Island State Park with this hurricane" 
Ed Morgereth:  There?s the potential for high winds and coastal flooding, and with t...
