NYC2050

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.

REDEFINING

BOUNDARIES

Throughout the years New York City has reinvented itself several times and its edge has followed such change. As we look forward to the future, this is the time for NYC to once again reshape itself to embrace the vital changes needed to allow the city to survive the present environmental issues.
