Please join us for an opening reception for the exhibition Structures of Coastal Resilience on Thursday, March 12, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The exhibition will run through March 15, 2015.
Structures of Coastal Resilience (SCR) is a Rockefeller Foundation-supported project dedicated to studying and proposing resilient designs for urban coastal environments in the North Atlantic region. SCR brings together a distinguished group of engineers, scientists, architects, landscape architects, and scholars to generate in-depth and informed proposals for four sites on the North Atlantic: Narragansett Bay RI, Jamaica Bay NY, Atlantic City NJ, and Norfolk VA. These areas feature ongoing projects by the US Army Corps of Engineers, demonstrate socioeconomic vulnerability, and are highly prone to flooding.
Princeton professors Guy Nordenson, Paul Lewis, Ning Lin, Michael Oppenheimer, and James Smith lead the project.
