  • Pier 26 - Hudson River - New York City
  • LOCATION
  • ARTIFICIAL ISLAND GROWING OVER THE YEARS
  • WATER LEVEL RISING PROJECTIONS ACCORDING TO FEMA

  • The general idea is not to stop the water, but to project its flow and create places that could be use either with or without water. Under this concept the city will have water but it would be in planned spaces. Moreover, the water will be clean and will not raze with everything along the streets and carry garbage and diseases. 

  • SECTION ANALYSIS
  • Building roof - Explanade connected with the higher level of the slope
     
    The explanade leaves open and protected places for people to enjoy going into the water, for leisure or studying purposes.
    It also mantains the access of the building vailable, when the building is under the water.
