|Description||Speaker of of "What to Do with 520 Miles of Coastline?"|
With 520 miles of coastline, New York is a city of islands and water. When local manufacturing declined in the mid-twentieth century, much of the city's shoreline fell into disuse and disrepair. Recently, New York has begun to reclaim this vital asset, cleaning up its waterways, reopening shoreline access, and building waterfront parks across the five boroughs. The work is part of an important larger trend in social awareness and a focus on public space in urban design.
Join Arup and ADFF for a screening of the short film “From Pier to Pier: New York City’s new backyard” followed by a panel discussion with leading members of the city's waterfront and public space communities.
Nancy Choi is a Senior Engineer at Arup, working on a wide range of projects that directly and indirectly affects the quality of New York City’s waterfront. A few of the projects that Nancy is currently working on includes the construction of a new park for Hunters Point South in Queens, the design of green infrastructure for the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, and the design of a floating swimming pool somewhere in the East River.
