Heterogeneous Bulwark | Kunnong Gu, Yiyang Liu, Lei Nie   

Combining the intention of protecting New York City from sea level rise with building brand-new waste management facilities, we propose a belt along the shoreline of West Brooklyn to protect New York City. We set three main design goals, protection, restoration, and resilient development. Our design aims to protect the city and the residents from sea level rise. Our design restore through pools to control flood water. To ensure resilience, the shoreline is transformed into a landscape with the capacity to address inevitable flooding while providing a safe space for new residential development. In order to achieve our position we incorporate several wall- and wall-adjacent typologies. We imagine a highly functional wall, the Heterogeneous Bulwark.
