2023 Summer Residency

Catastrophe Averted: Prolonging Tomorrow is an architectural graphic novel creatively depicted as a polyptych that embarks on a visionary journey through the vibrant streets of New York City, showcasing six groundbreaking sustainable initiatives that serve as beacons of hope for a greener and more resilient urban future. Set against the backdrop of iconic boroughs—the narrative takes you on an awe-inspiring adventure that highlights projects where environmental consciousness meets innovative design.

Catastrophe Averted: Prolonging Tomorrow is not just a drawing series—it's a call to action. By celebrating these sustainable initiatives, we aim to inspire architects, urbanists, and city dwellers alike to embrace responsible urban practices. As we envision a future where sustainable projects like these are the norm, together, we can pave the way for a more resilient and sustainable urban landscape for generations to come.
