Dryline Project Wins Award

Big U team, led by BIG and One Architecture, has been honored with the bronze price of the LafargeHolcim Awards, the most significant international competition for sustainable design and construction.

The Dutch-Danish-US consortium received the Global Award for sustainable construction for their Dryline project. The Dryline project addresses New York City’s vulnerability to coastal flooding with a protective ribbon in Southern Manhattan.

Created by a consortium led by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group and One Architecture, the 13km long infrastructural barrier incorporates public space with the high-water barrier doubling as parks, seating, bicycle shelters and skateboard ramps.

At the ceremony in New York City, Daniel Zarrilli, Director at the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency, commended the project that will enable New York City to withstand and emerge stronger from the impacts of climate change.
