Home > Winners > #44424


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
NYC 2050

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
City Masterplan

INSPIRATION:
As one looks throughout the history of Manhattan's edge, one may realize how it has changed throughout the years in order to better adapt the city to the needs of the time. This masterplan addresses the necessary changes to make NYC a resilient city as it embraces the current climate crisis and it readapts itself once again for the future. By taking Venice as inspiration and letting the flood be part of the city life, a new New York is brought to life.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This futuristic masterplan envisions how NYC can readapt itself to the near future sea level rise and continues to be a vibrant and important cosmopolitan city center at the same time that it addresses the natural changes to its environment and surroundings.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This masterplan can be used to identify the changes that NYC will have to implement in order to accommodate the needs of a flooded city.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
August - December 2015. Ithaca, NY. Walmir Luz, Thesis, Bachelor of Architecture, Cornell University.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The whole masterplan was designed and created using photo manipulations on Photoshop.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Photoshop file. 40in x 40in.

TAGS:
New York City, Climate Change, Flood, Sea Level Rise, Masterplan, 2050

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The masterplan was conceptualized by studying the history of Manhattan's edge, the climate crisis predictions by the United States Landfalling Hurricane Probability Project, and several climate studies produced by the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

CHALLENGE:
The critical part was to carefully study the city's current masterplan in order to better design the new one that required major real state compromises. The new design had to accommodate the necessary changes, introduce a new urban life and reimagine a new New York that is ready to embrace the future.
