Affording Resilience: Housing Retrofits For Climate Threats

Thursday, Aug 7, 2014

In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, there has been a great deal of design thinking about how to retrofit affected properties. Ideas include increasing building volumes to make up for the units lost by placing utility systems on higher floors, or implementing innovative landscape design to keep flood waters at bay. Many of these solutions, however, face regulatory barriers and very high price tags – a challenge for New York City’s affordable multifamily housing in the flood zones.

In January 2014, the NYU Furman Center, in partnership with AIANY and Enterprise Community Partners, organized the Retrofit Solutions Workshop to engage the building community in a collaborative conversation about retrofitting affordable housing for future threats. This exhibition showcases ideas from that charrette and explores the options and impediments that multifamily buildings face as they seek to prepare themselves for long-term climate resilience.

Sponsors: AIANY and Enterprise Community Partners & NYU Furman Center. Additional support was made possible by The NYC Housing and Neighborhood Recovery Donors Collaborative.

This exhibition is free to the public and has been made possible through the generous sponsorship of Deutsche Bank.

Date: Now through August 7

Location: The Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place
