Hunts Point 2080

Hunts Point 2080 is a story that explores uncertain climate risks for the future of New York City. In the future, site-specific compound risks, like flooding and extreme heat, will reorient the priorities of people, cities, and systems. In 2040, New York City takes drastic steps to secure the food supply chain which could survive in a city that is increasingly being violently flooded. The Hunts Point Produce Market, the current largest produce distribution center for the city, is the focal point of the story. The story follows activist characters in Brooklyn who set out on a quest to find vital food supplies in times of disasters, and who encounter the architectural and infrastructural impacts of a localized food supply chain. The project is envisioned through three phases: 2040, with the existing warehouses; 2060, with structural strengthening elevated bars; and 2080, with extra programs like a hydroponic farm, algae pools, and housing grown off of the bars. The culmination of the story is a sense of vitality and survivability in times of disaster, in which architecture can be a triumphant tool for an uncertain future.
