Using recently completed project examples, this session will explore the design commonalities that have contributed to project successes or shortfalls. Speakers will provide a brief overview of key New York area resiliency proposals over the past several years, evaluate their strengths at differing scales of project scope, and analyze the roadblocks they faced, whether from a design perspective, a mismatch of community needs, or a lack of funding. This session will also examine fiscal, aesthetic, and technical motivations that have informed the preferred strategies of urban planners. From these examples, we aim to further a discussion how the shared elements of these designs might inform future work and process.
