Elizabeth English featured in New Yorker magazine

Elizabeth English is featured in New Yorker magazine, speaking about current climate conditions and amphibious architecture as a solution.

Amphibiation reflects a growing consensus that, at a time of climatic volatility, people can’t simply fight against water; they have to learn to live with it.

With amphibious construction, water becomes your friend. The water gets to do what the water wants to do. It’s not a confrontation with Mother Nature—it’s an acceptance of Mother Nature.
