Book Talk, ‘Blue Dunes’ Feb. 1 at the Center for Architecture
Next Thursday, Feb. 1, join us for a book talk on the recently published Blue Dunes: Climate Change by Design, at the Center for Architecture. The panel will discuss issues of resiliency and coastal protection.
Blue Dunes chronicles a post-Hurricane Sandy proposal to create barrier islands centered on the New York/New Jersey Harbor to protect the coast from future storms and surge flooding. Working with scientists, engineers, planners, economists and maritime stakeholders, the authors and project team identified such key issues as habitats, recreation, navigation, constructability and funding.
The speakers are the editors — Harvard GSD’s Jesse M. Keenan, PhD, and Claire Weisz, FAIA, of WXY architecture + urban design — as well as Langan’s Jonathan Goldstick, P.E., who worked on the concept. The moderator is author Karrie Jacobs, venue hosted graciously by AIA New York Chapter.
