Floodscapes, Contemporary Landscape Strategies in Times of Climate Change, was published by nai010 publishers in March 2021. It was written by Frédéric Rossano with support from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, Bureau of Architectural, Urban and Landscape Research (BRAUP) and AMUP Research Laboratory.
It defines a floodscape as the visible, tangible, and acceptable changes that occur to topography when a flood temporarily erases previously established forms and features from the visible landscape. Acknowledging the inevitability of floodscapes and embracing their impact is seen by Rossano as a more practical method of adapting to nature rather than fighting against it as long as safety is maintained and risk is minimised.
