It’s a tough time to be an architect. Some of biggest new developments today are planned for sites right next to water — and are vulnerable to flooding.
Across the country, old industrial sites alongside rivers and canals are being rebuilt. In New York City, the giant development at Hudson Yards is just a few yards from the Hudson River. Architects now have to create designs that manage floods, according to local news source DNAinfo, which has gathered information and renderings from a dozen water-resistant designs.
For example, Rudin Management’s new Dock 72 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is raised above grade level (pictured). Thor Equities is also creating a deployable flood wall for its Red Hook Point development, also in Brooklyn.
