ARCH-770YP Flood-Proof

3 Credits

This seminar aims to develop a body of design research and creative work that focuses on “wet floodproof” housing and office buildings, designed to resist damage from flooding as floodwaters enter the structures. These types of buildings may help communities become more resilient in the face of sea level rise and climate change, including in New York City. Students will engage in design-research, design, 3D modeling, environmental simulations, and visualization activities.
