About Living, Growing Breakwaters

Selected as one of ten design teams, SCAPE Landscape Architecture’s layered strategy for Raritan Bay and Staten Island introduces protective breakwaters and interior tidal flats that can dissipate wave energy and slow water, while rebuilding sustainable oyster populations within the ecosystem. Working with locally impacted communities and schools, a range of alternative futures can be developed that are effective, resilient, and complimentary to the ongoing shoreline work of the region.

Focusing specifically on the South Shore of Staten Island, communities that potentially stand to benefit from this project’s mitigating impacts include areas of Tottenville, Lemon Creek, Crescent Beach, Great Kills Harbor as well as ecologically sensitive areas such as Mount Loretto. This event is the second public outreach workshop planned for this phase of the Rebuild By Design competition. Please attend to hear more about the project, engage in its design, and see how the comments from the first event have influenced the project designs and programs.
