Abstract: Now more than ever, the design and construction of in-water infrastructure, public shorelines, and landscape spaces requires nimble approaches by multidisciplinary teams of professional in a complex regulatory environment.  Utilizing current technologies and drawing on expertise in horticulture, ecology and urban design, SCAPE’s designs focus on addressing climate change, habitat loss, and social inequity with dynamic, engaging solutions.  John will present 3 of SCAPE’s current projects that directly address issues of coastal resilience, designing public space along the shoreline, and constructing landscapes within the floodplain.
