The first opportunity concerns the continuation and elaboration of our regional study, in order to both enhance the connection between these flood zones, whilst simultaneously providing evacuation routes to the ridges and high points between them.

We propose to upgrade, adapt, and transform the flood zones and their edges into an armature for our resiliency districts, concentrating and adding development in specific opportunity zones along these edges, while building out a robust ecological landscape infrastructure for the flood zones at large.

I attended the NYU event and I was most impressed by this team’s presentation. Maybe I missed it, but I wish the website would display the first panel of their presentation–it is a master class in the visual display of information.
Overall, I thought this team most effectively conveyed a tremendous amount of information in an extremely legible way. I also felt that, while all of the presentations were interesting and engaging, this team’s approach was the most thoroughly thought-through.
