Course description

Redefining the landscape and waterfront around one of Brooklyn’s most architecturally iconic industrial shells, the New York Port Authority Grain Terminal will be the focus of the studio this summer. Located at the base of the Gowanus Canal, between Gowanus and Red Hook, the massive structure looms over the water’s edge. Over the course of the semester you will partner with local organizations to explore the elements and components that constitute this landscape and establish strategies for the environmental inputs and outputs, land-form and terrain, infrastructures, and urban form which address the social and environmental issues facing the community.
