NYC 2050 City Masterplan

Walmir Luz

Urban Planning and Urban Design NYC 2050 City Masterplan by Walmir Luz Sea-level rise is a major concern for most coastal cities around the world. Thirty percent of Lower Manhattan is expected to sink below sea level by 2050 while also becoming more vulnerable to storm surges. This masterplan aims to use the flood as a tool to transform the city, redefine the future urban life, and manipulate the city's edge once again as one embraces the imminent threat. In this vision for a future city, the problem becomes the instrument in which changes are implemented; a new territory is created; a new New York is brought to life.
