This project recognizes that design for resiliency is imperative when facing global warming and rising sea levels. Red Hook, a Brooklyn neighborhood that has an active shipping port, was flooded by Superstorm Sandy. Using the excess shipping containers that pass through the port ever day, this project reuses them as a street kiosk that can provide public amenities, or close off corridors from flooding for safe evacuation. In conjunction with this, the project also proposed a network of bike pathways.
