    (This spot will be beautifully art directed, giving the real setting—Paris—an even more cinematic
    quality. Think Amelie. The music will be upbeat and fun.)

    We open on a soaked young woman stepping in from a spring rainstorm into a cute little
    European-style café.

    She fumbles for her change purse and pays for a Diet Coke at the counter. She takes a drink
    from the glass bottle and lets out a happy sigh.

    She quickly checks her make-up in a beautiful gold compact. The mirror is slightly cracked.
    Seeing that the rain hasn’t dampened her good looks, she opens up her colorful umbrella indoors
    and steps outside. A fun, carefree music track begins, a musical cue to her shift in mood.

    (This music will also act as a contrast to the paranoid and very un-carefree reactions of those
    who witness her “unlucky” actions.)

    The rain has stopped. She closes her umbrella and notices a beautiful black cat crossing her
    path. She kneels down briefly to pet it. As she does, we notice a passerby go out of her way to
    avoid the cat. Our girl takes another sip of her Diet Coke and continues to glide down the street,
    her cute heels confidently stepping on crack after crack in the sidewalk.

    A moment later, we see her walk happily underneath a ladder that’s holding an old Frenchman
    painting a classic Parisian sign. Sensing someone beneath him, he looks down at her as she
    passes through. As he watches her go down the street, the painter accidentally knocks over his
    paint, splattering an unlucky pedestrian walking by.

    She walks by a beautiful fountain (wishing well) and watches a couple of school-age girls throw
    coins into it.

    She stops at a street corner to take another drink of Diet Coke and decides to turn onto 13th
    Avenue. For the first time, we see that our sweet girl has a coy look on her face—almost as if
    she’s tempting fate to test her resolve.

    A light rainbow appears in the spring sky of Paris. An “unlucky” crow lands on a street lamp.

    (In the end treatment, let’s swap the can with a shot of the liquid in a beautiful bell-shaped glass,
    perhaps with a few animated bubbles coming out of it.)

    Better Homes for the Apocalypse

    im always worried about the apocalypse. im glade someone has thought of housing solutions for the apocalypse.

    What if a Category 3 hurricane struck New York City, ravaging much of its 578 miles of coastline and leaving hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers at least temporarily homeless? This is not just a scenario from yet another disaster movie. The city’s Office of Emergency Management, with support from nonprofit groups, sponsored a $100,000 open design competition “to generate solutions for post-disaster provisional housing.”

    The name of the competition — “What If New York City…” — evokes the doom-and-destruction theme that seems to be running through popular culture. The premise of the competition, announced last September, is far more practical. Designers were asked to consider a “fictional but realistic New York City neighborhood” — Prospect Shore — were devastated by a hurricane, leaving 38,000 families without housing. Could effective designs be used to provide safe, comfortable living space for displaced people in a hurry? Could such shelter be cheap, environmentally responsible and reusable in other settings, including future emergencies?

    Architects, industrial designers, engineers, inventors and students from 30 countries submitted 117 submissions, and in a 20-page report [pdf] released today, the jury competition announced 10 winners and 10 honorable mentions in the competition. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Joseph F. Bruno, commissioner of emergency management, announced the winners — who will each receive $10,000 — at a news conference in Brooklyn.

    Some of the designs seemed, to us, rather, uh, optimistic, given the scope of the calamity suggested by the design rules. A sampling of the winners and their proposed designs:

    Matthew Francke of Boston: Mobile Emergency Relief Ports, or Merps, movable vessels supporting 1,000-square-foot one-bedroom and 1,300-square-foot two-bedroom apartment units resting on a steel skeleton. The apartments would include “ample closet space, stainless appliances and natural stone countertops.” (Hey, why wait for the hurricane? Lots of people could use these apartments right now.)
    David Hill of Raleigh, N.C.: Treading Water. Housing units would be placed atop floating barges, allowing for debris removal and gradual restoration of the ravaged coastline. The units would be made of fiberglass panels, with photovoltaic cells to provide energy. Hydroturbine grids would provide a permanent power source, while the barges would eventually acceleration the natural restoration of the estuary.
    James Vira of Manhattan: Rapid Deployable Inflatable Containers. The size of shipping containers, these inflatable structures could be easily moved by flatbed trucks, hoisted by cranes and stacked on top of each other to create apartment-block-like complexes. Multiple containers would make up an “agglomerated living unit” that would allow horizontal and vertical movement from one container to another.
    Carsten Laursen of Copenhagen: Assuming the “collapse of urban structure” and the leveling of entire areas, easy-to-assemble hexagonal housing units could be the basis of a new urban grid, transcending the traditional street grid of long thin blocks. “The convergence of multiple uses creates a vibrant and dynamic urban space that underlines the importance of bringing people together in a crucial time in their lives,” Mr. Laursen wrote.
    The jury evaluating the submissions comprised seven members: David J. Burney, the city’s commissioner of design and construction, who was the jury’s chairman; Mr. Bruno; Paul Freitag, development studio director and senior project manager at the Jonathan Rose Companies; Mary Miss, an artist; Guy J. P. Nordenson, a structural engineer and Princeton professor; Enrique Norten, architect; Richard Plunz, professor at the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation; and a facilitator, Lance Jay Brown, an architecture professor at the City College of New York. The competition received financing from the Rockefeller Foundation and help from Architecture for Humanity-New York, a group of design professionals who encourage social responsibility.

    Inspiring or depressing? Realistic or fanciful? These designs are going to be studied as part of the city’s emergency preparedness plans; if catastrophe strikes, you just might see a Rapid Deployable Inflatable Container floating up the Hudson or East River to the rescue.
