6 Smart, Flood-Resilient Home Designs for the Future:

roared across the eastern seaboard last October, Long Island was hit with devastating storm surges that wrecked thousands of homes. To help rebuild a stronger and more resilient LI community, NYIT's School of Architecture and Design teamed up with state officials to form a new organization called Operation Resilient Long Island (ORLI). In its latest call for action, ORLI organized the 3C Comprehensive Coastal Communities Competition to help spur new ideas about resiliency against future storms by creating new housing typologies. The competition drew in 60 design entries from 20 countries, and now NYIT is hosting an exhibit of the top 32 finalists.
