Design Studio Reviews: Resilient Eco-District for NYC, Spring 2013
Design Studio Reviews

The students designed resilient and sustainable “eco-districts” within a vulnerable coastal neighborhood in New York City impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The work emerging from this and similar studios builds on projects and research by MAURD faculty focused on climate-resilient urban design, and contributes to the critical dialogue in New York City and other cities confronting climate change. The teams tackled these themes:

  • Isolation + hyper-connectivity
  • Water city
  • Livable-porous barrier
  • Micro-climate
  • (De) Combined system overflow
