How Roosevelt Island Project Started

Project Vision:

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.

Project Context:

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.
