Overview

Mr. Tahir in collaboration with the Houston Planning Committee have allowed us to organize a design sprint regarding the flooding issues in Houston Texas.

 

One of Houston's greatest issues is flooding and its ability to affect everyone in terrible ways, in several cases resetting someone's life back to zero. Knowing this, the Houston community and planning committee have found many ways of predicting and mitigating such issues, yet they are not enough. 

 

Many young adults have the ability to look at a problem in an entierly new way, creating a possible solution to an issue that was left unresolved by hundreds of others. In this design sprint we were hoping to utilize this creativity and target it to the prominent topic of flooding in Houston Texas.
