Abstract
Climate change adaption is becoming more and more crucial within sustainable urban design. Global warming affects an increase of heavy rainfall events in Europe and especially in Germany. Deggendorf, a city in southeast Germany, has experienced a severe flood in 2013 caused by a dike burst. The chosen site in Deggendorf lies next to a dike park and has unused potential to be developed.
The thesis discusses the problem of extreme rainwater events and areas behind flood defences not being addressed appropriately within urban design in Germany and argues for the need of integrated flood control within urban development in order to make cities more sustainable and flood resilient in times of climate change.
