Team Uplift
UPLIFT is committed to the long-term success of the Bay Area and its diverse communities. We recognize the importance of the positive and influential impact our Bay Area communities have on millions of lives around the world – and we live here!  The Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge effort elevates an important and timely dialogue about addressing the resilience of this influential region.  As citizens and urban practitioners, we embrace this opportunity to work with the community to develop innovative, implementable solutions to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes, protecting our most vulnerable at-risk communities and balancing the ecological systems most impacted by urbanization.

UPLIFT is a multidisciplinary team of designers, engineers, strategists and financing advisors whose collective experience spans scales, disciplines, and the globe. Gensler, founded over 50 years ago in San Francisco, provides planning + urban strategy, design, and architecture expertise. Arup, a global engineering consultancy, brings environmental engineering, infrastructure, and resiliency risk analysis. Margie Ruddick Landscape provides landscape architecture and ecological design. HR&A Advisors brings us public finance and policy insight and Stamen Design assists in data visualization and research. Our academic partners, UCLA will provide environmental narrative and Stanford Engineering Sustainable Urban Systems Initiative will provide research and design.
