The Abess Center helped bring together groups of people from across the UM campus in the fall of 2013 to work with the ideas and concepts of artist Eve Mosher and consultant Heidi Quante to realize vision of Mosher’s The High Waterline Project. Faculty from the UM School of Architecture in partnership with AIA Miami held a contest to encourage design of private homes in the face of rising sea levels in the Miami area. The contest is documented here. The winning entry was from Nicolas Alcega, Katja Kuznik, Maria Eduarda Oliviera, Mingxuan Qin for designs in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami that range in scale from the individual home to the neighborhood level. The jury had this to say about their entry:
“A thoughtful project that bridges public and private property coordination. An excellent community approach that is legible for the average homeowner. A project that took into consideration both the increment and the larger picture while also looking at adjacent properties. Great Drawings!”
