Super Docking - Brooklyn Navy Yards  |  Nurhan Gokturk  |  Terreform ONE
Credits: Planetary ONE, Joachim, Gokturk, Ailova, Maestres, Beane, Felson, Meyer.
Status: Unbuilt   |  Location: Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, 11205 
 On a post industrial site in Brooklyn, New York, Super docking imagines a self sustaining working waterfront that is the center for green and clean industries that are incubators for new technologies. The site is adaptable to climate change, geared for living infrastructure and seamless land and water interface. The project showcases the historic dry docks, which are dedicated to 3D digital printing and scanning, ecological testbeds, and moving raw materials and finished goods on and off the site. The surface of the site mitigates land and sea, clean water and pollutants, combined sewage overflow and sets the terrain for pedestrian movement through the site. The project is a living vascular membrane, it is a ecological industrial landscape established to manage both man made and natural systems, while considering land use needs and the urgency to aggregate innovation for social and economic diversity. It encourages research, both as an industrial activity and as an ecological activity to promote new products and areas of industry.

Air Ops: A Retroactive Platform for Energy Exchange by James Leng

Air Ops is a project about re-envisioning zoning and energy-use in a post-Hurricane Sandy Manhattan.  The core of the project hinges on the notion that zoning has always been one of the most potent elements in shaping the city, and in order for architecture to tackle the problem of energy at the urban scale, especially as a response to the increasing volatility of the climate, it must bring topics of sourcing and using energy into active dialogue with zoning, real estate, and the public realm.

Just a few months ago, Hurricane Sandy tore a path of destruction through the North East.  In some ways, it was an event that revealed the fragile nature of the city’s electrical infrastructures.  It raises the question: How can we create a certain level of individual energy autonomy, while simultaneously increasing the robustness of our existing energy infrastructure?  One possibility is to look at the potential of an infrastructure that operates between the scale of the parcel and the scale of the city - a local, block scale system that can retroactively integrate with multiple existing buildings.
