Abstract: Sea Level Rise is a global phenomenon that will affect countries that are low lying. The Mekong Delta, being a deltaic, low lying region is under the direct threat of the rising sea levels. The Delta is also the largest rice producing, fertile land in Vietnam. This Thesis aims to design for a community that can adapt to this rise in sea level. Various technologies for floatation are examined and applied for the development of a community that functions even when land is inundated.
