The proposal seaks to debilitate the existing unfitbuilt infrastructure bydestroying its linearity, and to generate a structure capable of dynamically monitoring the ecosystems' energy of the barrier islands. To reinforce the role of the dunes in the protection of the coast reducing the erosive effect of storms, the proposed strategy lays on two main points: increase the sand volume available for the coastal dynamic and create controlled frail areas subject to storm breakthroughs. These areas, free of construction, will contribute to a greater safety factor in built areas in case of outbreak.
