Room 124, Gund Hall, 48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

Jeff Carney will present three distinct resilience building efforts through the ongoing work of the LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio. Projects explore methods of visual communication, community engagement, and ecological system design each bridging a range of expertise from coastal science, engineering, and design. This multi-disciplinary design thinking approach to coastal change has re-centered designers in the urgent task of moving forward in an increasingly indeterminate landscape.
