Design a Resilient Housing Typology for the 3C Comprehensive Coastal Communities CompetitionJuly 25th, 2013
Organized by students from ORLI (Operation Resilient Long Island) and the New York Institute of Technology, the 3C Comprehensive Coastal Communities Competition aims to address issues facing towns that are vulnerable to, and have been affected by coastal storms. While post-Sandy rebuilding has begun, little has been done to develop new strategies that will mitigate the impact of future storms — particularly those related to re-zoning and adaptable housing typologies. The 3C Comprehensive Coastal Communities Competition wants to create a platform that will bring forth ideas for a specific northeastern coastal community. Participants are invited to design a resilient housing typology that will be integrated into the community master plan. Submit works by July 25th, 2013 for consideration.
