    Brad ISNARD & Saoli CHU: ASSISTED DENSITY envisions a future form of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) whose priority is not the construction of hard housing systems. NYCHA becomes a latent structure which connects the various circulatory systems of the Bronx and creates new territories that permit the proliferation of social programs to alleviate the historically high population, low flexibility, mono-programmed tower blocks of NYCHA.

    carla LORES + michael YARINSKY: New York City’s Watershed is a site in crisis. Not only is there a larger demand for water due to the growth of the population, but due to further suburban development in upland areas, water catchment sites are not as hygienic as once thought. Within the Croton Watershed lies Carmel. This suburban town in Putnam County has large basins for water catchment integrated into a developed suburban community. The distributed system currently in place for the dispersal of sewage, though, has a very high risk of contaminating the watershed.
