URBAN LITTORAL: LANDSCAPES OF PROTECTION AND ADAPTATION ON A CHANGING SHORE
Boston Harbor is a place of change, where the edge between land and sea has long been under negotiation. Filled lands made space for the urban grid and coastal ecologies that once dominated its shores are few. With rising sea levels and intensifying storms, this man-made shoreline is revealed to be at risk. Boston, in a bid to protect it’s neighborhoods and economic assets is re-imagining it’s urban edge in the face of a changing climate. This talk will highlight projects from regional planning to site-specific landscapes that explore the potential for this edge and the challenges of working both with and against water in the formation of a new urban littoral.
