My project, Symbiotic Tributaries, seeks to address the excessive consumption of water and electricity in New York City, namely water and electricity by introducing a system that supplements these resources. New York City unsurprisingly still ranks as the world’s most wasteful megacity in water consumption. My proposal attempts to address this excessive consumption of resources through the collection and recycling of rainwater while bolstering clean energy production, and reimagines the way we utilize the city’s air space by introducing an expandable, templated, cantilevered structure that can both redirect acidic rain to purification systems and supplement clean electricity to the buildings the system is a part of. It provides public space as a walkable “garden” and relaxation area to the surrounding area, a private plane from the noise and bustle of the city, while still keeping the surrounding intact. This template relies on structural support from its surrounding buildings: taller buildings will provide water collection systems to the lower structure, redirecting water to collection pools to be filtered by an underground filtration system.
