NYC - Landscape on the Front Lines: Resiliency begins on Site


6:00 PM - 8:00 PM TUESDAY, JULY 29
The Center for Architecture: 536 Laguardia Place, NY

Risks, natural or man-made, most often have a cause and effect that transcends any individual building and impacts wide areas. The structure of the landscape, especially at natural edges like the ocean’s shore or fault zones, is always changing and adapting the land to new conditions. This can take place suddenly or in geologic time. How do landscape architects accommodate these processes in designing places that can reduce risk, adapt to climate change, and function as great public open space that is ecologically and esthetically rich? Case studies will demonstrate exceptional resilient design for three parks, two campuses—one institutional and one governmental—and a surprising golf course atop a water filtration plant
