Michael Jefferson and Suzanne Lettieri: (post)line
(post)line is an exploration of the United States coastline and of the urban and architectural scale interventions resulting from its environmental degradation. Urban and regional scale mappings examine the inward moving coastline and the marginal territories predicted to be compromised in the coming decades and centuries. Architectural scale investigations document the prevalent raised-house typology as it exists along the East and Gulf Coasts and its growth as a suburban regular. These urban and architectural scale implications depict an either/or condition in which coastal inhabitants must decide whether to raze their neighborhoods or raise their houses.
Michael Jefferson and Suzanne Lettieri received the 2013–14 Eidlitz Travel Fellowship, from which (post)line was produced.
