Gowanus Flowlands Wetlands for Environmental Remediation

Urban Planning

“Flowlands” proposes the co-existence of two ecologies that are often thought of as restricted to markedly different locales. New pedestrian activity would exist over the more fragile wetland environment by way of a network of elevated thoroughfares for access from the streets to the edges of the canal and all points in between. The systems respond to each other much like a double helix—not combined, but rather intertwined. Together, the wetland layers work together to clean not only the polluted waters of the canal, but store and filter stormwater runoff to prevent new pollution.
