  • Publication / Exhibition

Oyster-tecture envisions an active oyster reef that diversifies aqueous marine life and recreational potential in the New York Harbor. The project was commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art in 2009 for the exhibition Rising Currents: Projects for New York’s Waterfront, an initiative to develop adaptation strategies for New York City in the face of climate change and sea level rise.
