Spider City

By 2050, the rising sea levels of New Orleans would pressure on the levee and make it more prone to collapse, which may result in perpetual flooding. As ground level will also continue to sink, flood damage to New Orleans will be quite fatal. Under this situation, the government decided to tackle the higher-ranked problems regarding rivers and flood from their perspective and requested a removal for local residents. Our project is aimed to maintain the habitability of local residents by utilizing our architectural design, which would alter their orthodox lifestyle; however, it would specifically resolve the contradiction between governments decision, natural status quo, and our objectives.
