    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    HUIYING zhang & LEIXIN luo: This design is trying to give a solution to the sea level rise problem in New York. As the water is something not stable, with complex form and complicated interaction to others, we try to use the self-organization and algorithm to build a protection barricade for each block. However, between each block we don’t try to preserve other lower buildings which are not important enough. On the other side, in these blocks there will be some new spaces and residental areas.The people who lose their home will be set to these new blocks.
