Mobile Hospital Features Every Aspect of A Hospital With Lot More Functionalities

The Level Rise City is designed with the goal to face the future environmental crisis of sea level rise for the Roosevelt Island in New York City. This design suggests the area to be considered as a laboratory for the flooding future and has established a conditional prototype to activate the relation between the Queens Borough Bridge and its surroundings. The deck of the bridge above 40 meters high from the ground along with the Skyline skyscraper has been envisioned as an alternative future development ground for the island. This tower building features both the horizontal and vertical importance which turns the building less a tower than a suspended HUB with the square elevation that has been made possible through two logics of distribution, one is the building and another is the island itself. This new city is equipped with offices and housings, innovative tram stations, outdoor sport fields, a couple of avenues of 40 and 46 meters high and other living essentials for the inhabitant
