Almost 400,000 New Yorkers live in floodplains, a number that should double by 2050 due to sea level rising. After Hurricane Sandy, the waterfront neighborhoods in which they live were dramatically re-envisioned, taking into account the heavy downpours and high winds that come with coastal storms. Is it possible to live safely while enjoying life at the water's edge?
On March 17, the Center for Architecture will host a discussion with architects working on some of New York's major waterfront residential developments. Lisa Schwert (SHoP Architects), Oliver Schaper (Gensler), and Eran Chen (ODA) will be there discussing their projects.
