Amphibious Red Hook

Brooklyn, NY


The Amphibious Red Hook plan is a multi-layered protection and development strategy for living with water that both protects from the negative impacts of sea level rise and creates a model for equitable, resilient growth for Red Hook and beyond. This is accomplished by creating redundant layers of protection from climate and mitigation of storm water to minimize damage and loss of life, integrating education and social cohesion with the built and engineered components of the Integrated Flood Protection System (IFPS), and providing a regional benefit by growing the renewable wind energy sector, providing jobs, and generating clean energy with capacity to power millions of homes.
