Envision Resilience: Designs for Living with Rising Seas

Final design proposals from Yale School of Architecture’s Spring 2021 Advanced Design Studio Coastal New England: History, Threat, and Adaptation, taught by Alan Plattus and Andrei Harwell, along with four other universities participating in the Envision Resilience Nantucket Challenge are being showcased in an exhibition on the second floor of the Nantucket Historical Association’s Thomas Macy Warehouse at 12 Straight Wharf, a historic building itself threatened by sea level rise.

The exhibition, which was developed in partnership with the NHA and with help from the Artists Association of Nantucket, runs from July through December 2021. Through the exhibition, the public is invited to explore the history of Nantucket’s relationship with water and the island’s resilience and adaptability to change.
