FAR ROCKAWAY COMPETITION
Far Rockaway, NY
Far Rockaway’s extensive beaches, access to open space and unique culture create the perfect opportunity to create a new sustainable coastal development- SURF CITY. Far Rockaway already has the foundation of a vibrant, well-cared for community. SC proposes a development that does not turn its back on the neighborhood, but rather integrates it into a dynamic and diverse community. Inspired by nature’s own technology, the site expands on the existing artificial reefs in the adjacent areas. The reefs not only create prime surfing conditions but also naturally protect the coast, preventing erosion of the beaches and damage of property.
