Designers Imagine Creative Ways That Boston Can Live When It’s Mostly Underwater

As climate change raises sea levels, many cities face the near certainty of flooding in the future. Take Boston. By 2100, forecasts show water levels climbing by five to six feet in its Harbor area, meaning that 30% of the city could be inundated.

The designs here are some ideas for how it might cope. They’re all submissions to a city sponsored competition called Boston Living With Water, and they represent a useful primer to the field of “blue architecture.”

I love this. I was just wondering about this very thing the other day.
