The Upper ManhattaProject

2018 - Ongoing
Topics: Urban Planning, Graphic Design, Print Production

The Upper Manhatta̶n̶ Project (UMP) book is a multi-disciplinary strategy for creating resilience to climate change in New York City and beyond. The book includes over 20 sections addressing specific environmental issues such as sea level rise, renewable energy, and cooperative housing, to name a few. Each section includes original plans for infrastructure development, case studies of other resilience efforts, and reference material such as evacuation plans, weather maps, and more. The plan itself was compiled over several years during engagement with hundreds of New Yorkers. While The Upper Manhatta(n) Project is focused on a local community, it serves as a model for community planning around the world.
