That was the question Erica Goranson and I answered in our Houston Ark competition entry from last year. Erica and I were having some fun creating some architectural science fiction based on a frighteningly real potential future scenario. At any rate, we recently saw that Raj Mankad, editor of Cite Magazine referenced the entry as a way of introducing an essay on how rising sea levels will impact Houston. We were thrilled to see our work used to introduce more serious scholarship on the topic.
