The Hong Kong–based firm proposes an entire neighborhood that burrows into the ground before a storm hits. Last week, New York was rocked by both an earthquake and a hurricane–two exceptionally rare events for the citys. Now if only our over-preparedness in the case of Hurricane Irene made up for the relative under-preparedness of other parts of world that are more prone to the forces of Mother Nature. Assuming that humans will continue to build in places they probably shouldn’t, Ted Givens, a design partner at 10 Design, has developed the notion of a tornado-proof suburb — clusters of sci-fi-looking houses that can respond to and withstand forceful wind gusts.
