A plan to waterproof Manhattan to fend off the sea

File this under “Way out there” but University of Pennsylvania students, Tingwei Xu and Xie Zhang have come up with a rather unique solution for when New York City eventually succombs to rising sea levels, a lattice like “membrane” to waterproof the buildings from the flooding. While this has little chance of ever being realized and any real danger of serious flooding given current climate trends is at least a few centuries away, it is interesting to see ideas embracing our potential reality rather than make futile attempts to fight it.
