Narrative (Synopsis):

Located in Jamaica Bay, our project aims to catalyze the shifting nature of the indeterminate boundaries—both physical and abstract—that exist across this artificial territory and turn them into an (atomized/local) real estate strategy for the creation of a shifting city. Moreover, we wanted to setup a scenario that accounts for a more mobile and dynamic property and zoning game—engaging with the system of land-making, and mud, in the process.
