Interim Housing: Redhook Brooklyn
       
     
 It is a challenge to shelter urban populations after a storm. The FEMA trailer of New Orleans fame  cannot handle the density. For the New York City Office of Emergency Management, we studied the possibilities of using a pre-fabricated module (designed by Garrison Architects) in multi-family configurations in proximity to their neighborhoods in order to restore  community and economy as well as housing. Working with our students from Pratt Institute and members from  the community we  identified sites and developed strategies for  Redhook, a neighborhood severely affected by Super Storm Sandy.

  The study was executed by Gans studio and Pratt students for New York City  OEM as part of the RAMP (reconstruction adaptation mitigation planning) curriculum, a multi-disciplinary effort of Pratt Institute to address the challenges of climate change as part of equitable and inclusive urban planning. The results were exhibited at OEM (above) as part of Open House New York 2013 and are currently on exhibit in the prototype module s by Garrison architects installed at OEM headquarters.

Interim Housing: Redhook Brooklyn

Historically, much of Brooklyn's waterfront was made up of wetlands. Areas such as Redhook mainly built on landfill are more vulnerable to flooding, as we all experienced in October of 2012 during Superstorm Sandy.

 It is a challenge to shelter urban populations after a storm. The FEMA trailer of New Orleans fame  cannot handle the density. For the New York City Office of Emergency Management, we studied the possibilities of using a pre-fabricated module (designed by Garrison Architects) in multi-family configurations in proximity to their neighborhoods in order to restore  community and economy as well as housing. Working with our students from Pratt Institute and members from  the community we  identified sites and developed strategies for  Redhook, a neighborhood severely affected by Super Storm Sandy.
