Manhattan Shelf | Yixin Miao, Yufan Hao, Ruokun Zhang     

Manhattan Shelf proposes a new elevated public transportation system as the Green New Deal in response to the sea level rise in the future and chooses Lower Manhattan as the experimental site to test how the polluted, grided, private and static Manhattan can be transformed to green, heterogeneous and a little messy space with more shared urban environment. Instead of being concrete and mono-functioned, this new flexible modular infrastructure is an urban shelf constructed by timber, not only supporting public transportation and logistics, but also providing space for animal habitat and community interaction.
