Where Land Meets Water: Rethinking the Shoreline in Urban Waterfronts - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Credits: None available.

Standard: $60.00


In many cities, the threshold between land and sea is abrupt and impenetrable. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is no exception. A new paradigm is emerging motivated by aquatic conservation and social justice. This session looks at design interventions that are transforming human and ecological interactions across the divide.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn about the key design drivers and factors that contribute to ecological health in sensitive shoreline environments.
  • Presenters will share strategies designers can use to collaborate with scientists and other non-designers to frame experiments and develop prototypes that test ideas and collect data.
  • Prototyping tests ideas for fine-tuning before scaling-up. Participants will learn how the design process can be structured to allow adaptation of design concepts in response to discovery.
  • Placemaking is an underlying goal of all landscape architecture, so participants will learn how ecological visioning plays a constructive role in unlocking the transformative potential of existing sites.
