Extreme Weather Architects: A New Profession?

Yahoo Logo

Graduate Daniel Horn was featured in Yahoo Finance speaking about NYIT's 3C Competition, which provides architects around the world with a chance to submit design and urban reconstruction plans for areas facing future challenges caused by climate change.

Horn is pursuing a career that focuses on environmentally minded architecture, and his idea for the competition stemmed from a design question: how do you raise effectively plan and design the elevation of neighborhood by eight to ten feet to avoid future flooding or to comply with new laws? Horn says "extreme architecture" should use a holistic approach and think beyond conceptual ideas as they consider the best ways to reshape construction in shoreline areas.
