Occasionally we see projects from architects in which they reinvent the perfect city, designing it to the very last detail in order to present the world with a new way of viewing urban life. These ambitious projects are tremendous in scale and usually never amount to more than a wildly imaginative concept. Although it would be interesting and very informative to see these concepts built in their entirety, there is simply not enough land or money or even public support to bring these “perfect city” conditions into fruition. The Brooklyn Navy Yards Super Docking project by Nurhan Gokurk is another such instance of a highly ambitious architectural vision that is currently unbuilt.

The Super Docking project was developed on a post-industrial site in Brooklyn, New York and attempts to mitigate the land and sea in a more sustainable working condition. The waterfront in this manner would become a center for green and clean industries and encourage the use of new technologies while also being highly adaptable to not only climate change but to site usage as well. By seamlessly incorporating the land and sea into the design, the project provides opportunities for the new developed site to clean water and pollutants, combine sewage overflow, and allow pedestrian visitation and movement though the site.

Defined as a vascular membrane and an ecological industrial landscape, the project showcases historic dry docks with several uses such as ecological testbeds and for moving raw materials and finished goods. Although the area of this project is quite expansive, careful consideration was placed on land use needs. It was important that the site encouraged research and promoted new products and areas of industry.

It is unknown whether or not construction will be started to complete this vision into a built form, but the idea itself shows forward thinking and immense dedication to making a location the best that it can be in order for the land to be used as productively as possible.
