Sink or Swim

2022 // Book Link here.

As the earth’s climate system becomes warmer, the sea level is rising. Coastline cities are most vulnerable to coastal floods and storm surges. The City of Portland experiences 0.018 meters of sea level rise per year. At this rate, by the year 2100 the city’s sea level will rise to 3 meters. This rise in water levels will result in population displacement and hazardous living conditions for remaining structures. Submarine City is a solution to climate change that will affect Portland. In theory, the proposed city will aid Portland in its population displacement and economic crisis. Submarine City is a mobile underwater settlement that provides permanent habitat for displaced humans.
