Energetic Waterfront

Sunset Park is an extremely populated and diverse neighborhood that has been disconnected from its essential waterfront due to the industrial zoning history. The building sector is the main consumer of energy in the city and relies on fossil fuels, natural gas, and petroleum. This plus the peak charges in the system generates major outages in the city including the last outage that put 50,000 users in Brooklyn without electricity. The energy we consume also generates tons of CO2 emissions leading to environomental destruction, floods, storms, and irreversible damages to the ecosystem. After looking at a series of assets and opportunites in Sunset Park, we proposed a system of interventons along the waterfront that addresses the challenge of climate crisis. This plan is composed of a algae biomass production industry, Photobioreactor(PBR) manufacturer, floating off shore PBR clusters, breakwaters holding the PBR, a set of new piers with different public programming such as parks and marinas, and access to the waterfront through beaches and wetlands restored as a result of flood mitigation.

Building Cradle to Cradle

This project tackles the issues of design under the Green New Deal in the Hudson River Valley. The building industry accounts for 30% of global carbon emissions with 40% coming from production and 60% from building efficiency. We tackled the question of how can we build better using less energy in production. The Hudson river valley has a history of building material production but many of these industries have been moved abroad leaving us with a carbon intensive building process and post-industrial disinvestment. By creating a new infrastructure of building material recycling and localized production, we can foster a new building industry that allows for suburban construction on smaller scales. The project will restart the economic engine of Kingston and Ulster county by providing new jobs and opportunities.

The port of Beira is the predominant economic source of the city. Benefiting from the city well-connected geological location and rich of social and ecological resources, the port serves as a hub of the global and local economy across the sea and the land. We ask “What if “we can transform the port of Beira to become� a multi-purpose international port with diversified local industries to cultivate a unique green port economy that empowers the local community of Beira? This includes promoting diversified job-intensive industries and providing education and training programs that build long-term economic resilience 41 for future generations.
