New York's shoreline has changed drastically over the centuries, transforming from a natural environment to one of shipping and industry. With increased interest in a livable city and the threat of rising sea levels, attention is now shifting to how to re-engineer nature back into the harbor. Join us as we go in depth with New York-based urban design and landscape architecture studio SCAPE about the Living Breakwaters project—reef-like structures designed to restore diverse aquatic habitats, lessen wave impacts, and restore the shoreline—featured in our exhibition Hudson Rising.
SCAPE manager Pippa Brashear and associate Nans Voron join New-York Historical Society associate curator Jeanne Haffner to dive into the design process and ecological reasoning behind Living Breakwaters and learn about the future of coastal resiliency.
