Waterworld, A 2nd Coast

Title: waterworld, a 2nd coast
Location: Cape cod, MA
Date: 2014
Project Type: landscape architecture, urban design
Program: remediation landscapes, cultural spaces, agricultural fields
Narrative (Synopsis):

A by-product of sea-level rise is the ascent of the freshwater aquifer which causes inland flooding. Our proposal choreographs inundation through the addition of new ponds, elevating them from “hidden gems” to projective and protective water-bodies that mitigate risk and respond to an indeterminate future.
