On the Water: Palisade Bay is the collaborative initiative of a group of engineers, architects, landscape architects, planners, and students to imagine a “soft infrastructure” for the New York–New Jersey Upper Bay by developing interconnected infrastructures and landscapes which rethink the thresholds of water, land, and city. It presents a new costal planning strategy which not only mitigates potential damage from storms but also provides new ground for recreation, ecologies, agriculture, and urban development. With climate change and sea-level rise acting as catalysts for this work, a quantitative analysis of dynamic systems serves as the foundation for this new soft infrastructure that both enriches the ecology of the urban estuary and creates a vibrant culture on the water.

Exhibition schedule: The Museum of Modern Art, New York, March 24–August 9, 2010
