New Urban Ground - DLANDSTUDIO & Architectural Research Office

MoMA Rising Currents Exhibition 2011

“Currently an oppositional relationship exists between the built city and water. “A New Urban Ground” proposes an integrated and reciprocal organization of natural and hard infrastructure systems. A combination of strategies, including perimeter wetlands, a raised edge, and sponge slips paired with new upland street infrastructure systems, protect the island from flooding in the event of a large storm.”
