Oyster-tekture - re-imagining New York Harbor - Rising Currents - MOMA

Rising Currents Zones 

Oystertekture is a project of Scape, a New York landscape architecture firm which is part of Rising Currents - Projects for New York's Waterfront now at MOMA.  I loved Oystertekture for its vision of restoring the Gowanus Canal as a seed farm for oysters, designing new oyster reefs for the Bay Ridge Flats  along the Buttermilk Channel south of Governor's Island - the City's newest park.
