New York City has a strong land transportation system. Especially in Manhattan, the combination of subways and buses make commuting and living convenient. In Long Island City (LIC), people also usually choose the subway as a means of transportation - including to and from Manhattan. This project attempts to link the NYC water road into the LIC land transportation. At the same time, by growing plants, collecting solar energy to drive the entire building, and expanding people’s perception of water level changes, to link nature, sunlight, seasonal and environmental changes with LIC citizens.
