In many cities, the threshold between land and sea is abrupt and impenetrable. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is no exception. A new paradigm is emerging motivated by aquatic conservation and social justice. This session looks at design interventions that are transforming human and ecological interactions across the divide.

Learning Outcomes
1. Participants will learn about the key design drivers and factors that contribute to ecological health in sensitive shoreline environments. 2. Presenters will share strategies designers can use to collaborate with scientists and other non-designers to frame experiments and develop prototypes that test ideas and collect data. 3. Prototyping tests ideas for fine-tuning before scaling-up. Participants will learn how the design process can be structured to allow adaptation of design concepts in response to discovery. 4. Placemaking is an underlying goal of all landscape architecture, so participants will learn how ecological visioning plays a constructive role in unlocking the transformative potential of existing sites.
