Brooklyn architecture firm Gans&Co (https://www.gansandco.com) in cooperation with Pratt Institute SOA completed a study which envisions how Garrison Architects designed OEM Post-Disaster Housing Prototype could be deployed in Redhook, Brooklyn, an area that flooded severely during hurricane Sandy.

The goal was to find out how we can respond differently in the future to help entire neighborhoods shelter in place or return quickly and sustain their community.

In addition, the studies tested out different scales of site and different kinds of housing possible using the infinitely flexible OEM modules.
