The Cornell University announced the fall 2019 Climate-adaptive Design studio, to be held in the Hudson River waterfront community of Ossining, NY. The Climate-adaptive Design (CaD) Studio is a semester-long course created by Cornell Department of Landscape Architecture Associate Professor Joshua F. Cerra that links students with Hudson riverfront communities to explore design alternatives for more climate resilient and connected waterfront areas. Offered in collaboration with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson River Estuary Program, the fall CaD studio will feature the work of third-year graduate students and will take place from September through December of 2019.
The Town and Village of Ossining have been selected to host the fall 2019 CaD studio through an application process that was open to all Hudson River Estuary waterfront communities. Letters of interest were solicited during the spring of 2019, and Ossining was chosen as the host site during a thorough review of all applicant communities.
