In the current exhibit in the downstairs gallery of the Lynn Museum, advanced architecture students from around the globe re-envision the potential of Lynn’s waterfront with rising sea levels in mind.
“The studio considered the city of Lynn, Massachusetts
as a case study, focusing on applying resilient
strategies to the redevelopment of the city’s
underutilized waterfront – an area threatened
dramatically by sea level rise. After researching and
analyzing the social, economic, and environmental
vulnerabilities of the region, students tested the
potential for resilient design by focusing on the
development of a resilient vision plan.” –Resilient Lynn // Arch 3 Studio: Site Work.
Tuesday, April 18th, architects, planners, faculty, some students and the public met at the Lynn Museum for an opening reception of an exhibit hosted by Lynn Museum/LynnArts and MassDevelopment’s TDI Partnership called Visions of Lynn.
Development strategies for Lynn’s waterfront by students at the Yale School of Architecture and the Boston Architectural College will be on display through May 2nd. The Lynn Museum is located at 590 Washington Street.
On May 2nd, EDIC Lynn and Brown, Richardson + Rowe, Inc Landscape Architects and Planners will hold a public meeting to develop a Lynn Waterfront Open Space Master Plan in the City Council Chambers, 4th Floor of Lynn City Hall, at 6pm.
One of the course instructors, Arlen Stawasz, is a Lynn resident who challenged his students to “…think differently about what Lynn can do about this terrible issue called climate change.”
