RIBA call upon Baca to give architects response to recent flooding in the media. Press coverage of the terrible and sustained flooding in Britain has been understandably high. The Practice has found itself busy, not just with enquiries about flood-resilient properties and planning, from individuals to government departments, but from many areas of the British Media, too. The Directors and Baca team have been regulars on the BBC News, ITV News, Radio 4, various local radio stations and in broadsheet and trade press.
Baca’s name as an expert practice in the areas of water-based architecture and flood-mitigation has led to the multitude of appearances on television, radio and in print features. Understandably, Baca’s flood-resilient Amphibious House has been attracting a lot of attention, along with the Aquobox flood-demonstration home and the award-wining LifE (Long-term Initiatives for Flood-risk Environment) approach to building space for water.
