 As the pandemic affects our daily lives, those who are immuno-compromised are at the highest risk. To mediate safety without jeopardizing access to resources, Pier Atlantis provides a city system that offers amenities to residents from the comfort of their homes. This new community consists of two main building types: Export Piers and Recreational Piers. Export Piers are represented by commercial or restaurant companies who are responsible for delivering packages of goods to customers living in Pier Atlantis. Their building cores are work floors for material preparation, while their external tubes are made to easily attach housing pods to where residents can receive their parcels in the safety of their home. To introduce a sense of community to Pier Atlantis, the Recreational Piers are used to host movies, bingo nights and more for residents in the comfort of their pod. With delivery tubes of their own, residents may order snacks and other elements for the activity before entering the viewing area of the Pier. The partly opaque dome allows for projections to be shown on the interior and its exterior skin is made of solar panel fabric to provide energy passively. As quarantining becomes more normal in society, Pier Atlantis provides an optimistic outlook to our city infrastructure in the future.
