RISING CURRENTS: Projects for New York's Waterfront is a major, eight-month initiative that will bring together teams of architects, engineers, and landscape designers to address and create infrastructure solutions to make New York City more resilient in response to rising water levels and to protect endangered eco-systems. The future of New York’s waterfronts has been identified as one of the most urgent challenges the nation’s largest city faces, with the anticipated rise in sea levels due to climate change. Comprising an eight-week architects-in-residence workshop at P.S.1 beginning November 16, followed by an exhibition of the resulting design proposals at MoMA, Rising Currents' purpose is to address the need for the design of adaptive “soft” infrastructures for New York and New Jersey’s Upper Bay.
The teams are led by principals from LTL Architects, nArchitects, Matthew Baird Architects, and SCAPE. Each will be given a stipend and residency at P.S.1, and the designs will be exhibited at MoMA in late March 2010.
Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki, and David Lewis of LTL Architects and team will work on the Northwest Palisade Bay/Hudson River area, which includes parts of New Jersey, Liberty Park/Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty and waters. Matthew Baird of Matthew Baird Architects and his team will focus on the Southwest Palisade Bay/Kill van Kull area, which includes Bayonne, N.J., Bayonne Piers, and northern Staten Island and waters. Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang of nARCHITECTS and their team are assigned the South Palisade Bay/Verrazano Narrows area, including eastern Staten Island, and Bay Ridge and Sunset Park in Brooklyn, and waters. Kate Orff of SCAPE Studio, and her team, will concentrate on the Northeast Palisade Bay/Buttermilk Channel and Gowanus Canal area, including Governors Island, the Red Hook area in Brooklyn, and waters.
