Design Studio Reviews: Resilient Eco-District for NYC, Spring 2013

 

The students designed resilient and sustainable “eco-districts” within a vulnerable coastal neighborhood in New York City impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The work emerging from this and similar studios builds on projects and research by MAURD faculty focused on climate-resilient urban design, and contributes to the critical dialogue in New York City and other cities confronting climate change.  The teams tackled these themes:

 

•         Isolation + hyper-connectivity

•         Water city

•         Livable-porous barrier

•         Micro-climate

•         (De) Combined system overflow
