LTL Architects was one of five architecture firms selected by MoMA to research and execute a design proposal for the exhibition, Rising Currents.The show examined the future impacts on the New York Harbor in anticipation of rising sea-levels brought on by global warming. The zone of LTL's scope includes Liberty State Park, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. By tactically adjusting the site's historic fill, this project proposes a vibrant amphibious landscape continually activated by rising tides. The underlying structure of the site is a series of four raised landscape piers, created by sculpting the existing landfill to create a series of petri dishes for both protected and productive areas. Based on the engagement of tidal fluctuations, the design proposes several different functions, including an Aquaculture Research and Development Center, an Amphitheater and Tidal Park, a Water Lodge, and a Regional Produce Market.
