BTN LiveBIG: Rutgers engineering smart Sandy rebuild

It has been almost two years since Super Storm Sandy devastated the eastern seaboard, but the impact is still painfully apparent. Families and businesses are still trying to rebuild, and Rutgers is working to ensure that the new New Jersey is more resistent and better prepared for the next major storm.

In Fall 2013, the Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers focused all advanced studios – approximately 70 graduate and undergraduate students – on design and planning issues facing New Jersey shore communities as a result of Super Storm Sandy. The four individual studios were unique in their study and the focus (housing, ecological planning, etc.), but they all worked to address climate change, sea level rise, infrastructure resiliency, community rebuilding, and future scenarios for development.

Welcome to the Big Ten, Rutgers!
