Coastal adaptation project drawing on stakeholder and community engagement to develop a Connecticut Statewide Resilience Roadmap that includes regional resilience and adaptation planning, policy consideration, and actionable priorities. Science-based regional risk assessments will inform these municipal to regional initiatives.
Ecopolitan Design developed a framework master plan for the Eli Whitney Museum landscape in New Haven, CT. The master plan integrates the Museum's floodplain location's riparian zones, a forested floodplain, a large dam, educational areas, public space, and birding and hiking with habitat goals through a site analysis plan, long-term phasing and landscape design, habitat diagrams, and section renderings.
A collaborative ecological engineering project addressing the vulnerable condition of Seaside Village through the construction of green infrastructure for coastal adaptation. Experiments were constructed in situ to study the performance of constructed wetland gardens for water quality and habitat value.
Development of coastal adaptation plans for municipalities in South Central Connecticut. We proposed near to long-term urban designs with social and ecological resiliency and investment goals. Projects provided tools for understanding the transition between land and water and the relationships between people and the spatial layout of the land.
Stanford University's Lagunita site features vernal pool systems of ecological significance. Utilizing conservation, planning, and viable research and management goals defined by the Land Use and Environmental Planning Department, Ecopolitan Design developed conceptual ecological designs that integrate habitat goals with public recreational activities.
A multidisciplinary Yale-based ecological engineering team investigating adaptations of greenwall technology to provide active heat rejection. The new technology, thermoGreenWall (tGW) will increase the amount and temperature of water re-circulating through green wall systems to provide strategically-useful heat rejection services.
