Rising Tides

James Robinson

With the outcome of the current climate disaster too complex to predict, current architecture needs to prepare for an uncertain future. This thesis project explores the extent that climate change will affect the world in the worst-case scenario sea level rise of 82m and developed an alternative way to look at urban skyscraper architecture due to mass migration to the north of Europe due to the disaster. A Masterplan for a metabolic vertical village was developed for Manchester, including key components that allowed it to be self-sustainable and encourage community interaction, as well as being adaptive to the rising sea levels and the needs of the village.
