description  
Sited in the Lower Ninth Ward, this project uses shipbuilding as a producer of post-Katrina regeneration. “Shipbuilding” is envisioned as regenerative at two scales: at the personal symbolic level, as a method of planning for escape from the threat of rising water, and at the community economic level, as a method of introducing a new industrial plant. The project houses dinghy-building seminars and workshops so that residents can build their own dinghies, thus providing means of last-resort evacuation. The project also creates an industrial shipbuilding complex on the bank of the levee to promote economic and industrial growth, while supporting a sense of community and place. This project turns the threatening aspects of the industrial canal into assets.
