using salt migration as an education tool

    NYRP FLOODLAB

    In collaboration with Desai Chia Architecture, RAFT developed the conceptual framework for an adaptive landscape, ecology center, and boathouse ready to respond to storm surge and migrating levels of salinity in Manhattan. 

    The NYRP FloodLAB proposes a dynamic environment to empirically study New York City's changing relationship between land and sea. The proposal would allow visitors to visualize our changing coast and its effects on plant and animal communities and offer citizen scientists the ability to contribute to a databank on sea level rise.
