Marsh-morphosis: A climate-responsive and adaptive design framework for habitat restoration and recreation for Rumney Marsh
The Pennsylvania State University
Faculty Advisor: Charles Andrew Cole
|The purpose of this capstone is to develop a landscape design strategy for the Rumney marsh that integrates research and design focused on improving habitat, creating recreational opportunities and mitigating the long term impacts of climate change. By developing such strategies that are in tune with the environment and sensitive to the natural systems, the proposal tries to establish design interventions to allow access and recreational opportunities while enhancing the marsh landscape community and ecology.
