The living shoreline project was complete in conjuction with Michael Singer Studios.
The Living Shoreline is comprised of 11 Sculptural Elements that are designed to retain soils to support the growth of mangroves and emergent grasses, create shelter and passage for fish, and establish oyster reef habitat within the Lake Worth Lagoon. This concept is a truly innovative approach to public art in which the artwork is created as an armature to support the regeneration and enhancement of critical estuarine habitat. The Living Shoreline will ultimately assist in improving water quality, it will protect the adjacent bulkhead seawall, public park, and infrastructure (including from early sea-level rise impacts), and it will support the restoration of habitat. Critically, it will do this in a manner that engages the broader public to witness the regenerative transformation of a barren seawall to support shallow water estuarine habitat through a piece of public art.
