‘NYC Offshore - a resilient city approach´ takes it’s starting point in a design competition concerned with a hurricane disaster scenario; the temporary accommodation for a displaced population. However; the project proposes a critical, resilient approach to contemporary planning practices in flood-prone areas advocating proaction rather then reaction through a design that materializes as a scenario based master plan incorporating a time variable. Instead of isolating one situation it emphasizes the importance of thinking in an overall dynamic coherence of designing for several situations instead of static moments. ‘NYC Offshore’ is designed not for a specific site but for a hypothetical neighbourhood resulting in a design with low contextual dependency but a high contextual adaptability.
