Soft Infrastructure rendering, by Luyi Huang

Luyi Huang envisions a softer edge to the city of San Francisco, and her capstone project, Soft Infrastructure, explores extending infrastructure that can adjust to rising water levels in the Bay. This adaptable boundary would include monitoring and filtration systems to clean the water, and it would incorporate spaces for research and community programming to educate residents about both the marine habitat and the effects of climate change—turning a challenge for the city into an opportunity for engagement.
