Under the scope of this uncertainty scenario, we approached with a development tool to engage this happen in the future of Atlantic City. Although there are paths to explore defense systems implemented in the coastal barrier, our spirit is to consider the worst, and probably, upcoming scenario: a completely sunken city. Following the premise of our coursework, This Sunken Feeling, the strategy address a new lecture for Atlantic City. As we believe the entire urban area as a development to provide services for incoming movement population, our eyes are focusing in how we envision the floating future city of casinos and
leisure of Atlantic City. How will be our interaction with its ruins? Even the aftermath of this catastrophe allows a possibility for economics.

The Zone addressed the possibilities of replication,encouraging other cities and exclusivity economic areas to implement floating solutions to have a chance of surviving after the change of our ground level. Atlantic City is fighting since decades to survive, and with this spirit, The Zone is the consequence of how
we will bring these demands into live after the storm.
