description  
“Deployable City” proposes a flexible system of multi-unit housing that is arrayed along the river's levees and into the wetlands. The goal of the project is to build safe and structurally sustainable housing on the banks of the river. Pod-like systems are connected by trellised walkways with green roofs. Closer to the water's edge, the density levels are lessened and housing units are designed like houseboats that can float with rising water. Further away from the river's banks, the density levels are increased and the housing units are organized in towers. This project offers New Orleans multi-family housing proposals that address such issues as flood mitigation and residential density through unique environmental strategies that answer the city's topography.
