2012 Hurricane Sandy, New Jersey
Updated: Apr 8, 2019
The floods have got me remembering New Jersey a week after hurricane Sandy. Having lived with tornadoes, I had never seen the power of a hurricane aftermath first hand. The power of water to redirect the stream bed was a great lesson. Also a good reason to try and accept the new pattern and not think we needed to "repair" anything. It was about using the new energy flow to create new opportunities. Also to get ready for further inundation and higher water. Not sure why everyone slams New Jersey, I though it was quite nice, in the country. Andrew Willner of Keyport, NJ was a great host. Since this, much has been learned from my design partners. Team design is definitely the way to go.
