Third Nature A rendering of Third Nature's Pop-Up garage.
During extreme storms, it's common for city infrastructure — from roads to subways to parking garages — to flood.
They designed a garage that could automatically move up and down as its water reservoir fills with and empties floodwater.
The Pop-Up garage has three sections: an underground water reservoir, five levels of parking, and a pedestrian space on top.
On dry days, most of the 30,460-square-foot structure could reside underground.
