Overview of R.I.P, THE ABBREVIATION OF ROOSEVELT ISLAND PROJECT
Sunday Project Sessions:
Time: Every Sunday, 12 PM - 3 PM EST
Format: Hybrid - Virtual Brainstorming & On-site Exploration (as per schedule)
Duration: Leading up to the conference on 3rd November 2024
Objective:To create an engaging and thought-provoking story for presentation at the "Death and the City: The Future Now" conference. The story will showcase our collective imagination of an eco-friendly, technologically advanced city built upon the submerged legacy of Roosevelt Island.
How Roosevelt Island Project Started
As the world contends with the reality of rising sea levels, Roosevelt Island stands as a testament to resilience and innovation. Our project, "Atlantis Risen," envisions a future where what was once a vibrant neighborhood of New York City transforms into an underwater cemetery, serving as the foundation for a new cityscape that rises above the waters.
The narrative is set in a time when climate change has significantly altered the landscape. Roosevelt Island, a symbol of the past, is now submerged, memorializing the history it carries. Above it, a new architectural marvel is built, incorporating the ethos of sustainability and advanced technology, representing humanity's triumph over environmental adversity.
