What if NY City…

As part of PlaNYC 2030, New York City Office of Emergency Management had sponsored a design competition for post-disaster provisional housing in the case of a hurricane other large-scale disaster in New York. The competition was supported by the Rockefeller Foundation and Architecture for Humanity-New York.


“What if New York City…” was a call for innovation and an opportunity for designers and policy-makers to collaborate on one of the biggest challenges facing densely settled urban areas after a disaster: how do we keep people safely and comfortably housed while reconstruction proceeds? GLOBAL’s team has created several interactive features describing Hurricane Scenarios, Hurricanes History and Possible aftermath of a Hurricane in NYC.
