ALERT: THE PROTOTYPE WILL BE CLOSED ON FRIDAY, OCT. 24.
As a follow-up to the What If New York City... Design Competition for Post-Disaster Provisional Housing, the Urban Post-Disaster Housing Prototype Program outlines a new plan for interim housing that will provide more suitable living spaces for New Yorkers displaced by disaster than conventional interim housing solutions used in other parts of the country.
NYC Emergency Management and the NYC Department of Design and Construction, with support from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, FEMA, and the Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program, has built and will test a prototype based on a shipping container-style modular system in Brooklyn, NY.
The prototype gallery will be open on Fridays from 11 AM to 1 PM. Group tours are available by appointment only.
