Strategies of Aquatic Defense; Bottom Up Solutions To Fight Rising Sea Level

This project utilizes a multilayered approach to deal with the rising sea levels that affect New York City, specifically Lower Manhattan. Power, like water, circulates. The negative capabilities of water should be understood and respected. The goal of this project is to allow water to safely circulate through Lower Manhattan without causing billions of dollars in damage to the city. These new channels of water make use of the already existing street network.
