currents in green infrastructure: designs for a sustainable new york city

April 4–30, 2013

This April, in celebration of Landscape Architecture month, the NY Chapter American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLANY) and The Hort present Currents in Green Infrastructure. This exhibition explores a topic currently at the forefront of the profession and showcases some of the most innovative design solutions, including Brooklyn Bridge Park, Bushwick Inlet Park, and Queens Plaza.

From city-led implementation for combined sewer management, to larger conversations about how our landscapes can protect cities from catastrophic events, today we expect our landscapes to be more productive and resilient, while still providing the everyday amenities of beauty and habitat. This is a complicated and site-specific type of work that deserves analysis as well as celebration.

Throughout April, The Hort and the ASLANY will host presentations, panel discussions, and social events to further the discussion of green infrastructure, advance the understanding of this broad topic, and elevate the role that landscape architects play to make New York City more sustainable.
