How will cities adapt to the risks and opportunities of population growth and sea level rise? Bunge will discuss My Micro NY, the firm’s winning entry for New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s adAPT NYC competition to design Manhattan’s first micro-unit apartment building, with construction to begin in 2014. This project brings to light the seemingly contradictory challenges of adapting our cities to the effects of climate change, while making them more livable for an increasing population.
