Please join us at the Center for Architecture for the closing program of Structures of Coastal Resilience! The speakers will present their research methods and will be followed by a group discussion exploring the themes of the exhibition.
Structures of Coastal Resilience (SCR) matches the latest science with urban and landscape design to propose actionable solutions for buffering against storms. SCR is a Rockefeller Foundation-supported project dedicated to studying and proposing resilient designs for urban coastal environments in the North Atlantic region. SCR brings together a distinguished group of engineers, scientists, architects, landscape architects, and scholars to generate in-depth and informed proposals for four sites on the North Atlantic: Narragansett Bay RI, Jamaica Bay NY, Atlantic City NJ, and Norfolk VA. These areas feature ongoing projects by the US Army Corps of Engineers, demonstrate socioeconomic vulnerability, and are highly prone to flooding.
