Design firm SCAPE, plans to build an oyster park at the mouth of Brooklyn’s waterway

Design studio SCAPE has come up with plans to build any oyster park at the mouth of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, New York.  The firm aims to help alleviate the city’s water pollution with their innovative project.

SCAPE’s ‘Oyster-tecture’ project is currently ongoing. The project has already received funding and construction has begun at the canal’s new pier area.

Oysters have been studied to eat dirt and toxins so they are able to help filter the water.

The design firm wrote about their project at their official website and it reads:

“This living reef is constructed from a field of piles and a woven web of fuzzy rope that supports oyster growth and builds a rich three-dimensional landscape mosaic… The reef attenuates waves and cleans millions of gallons of Harbor water through harnessing the biotic processes of oysters, mussels and eelgrass, and enables neighborhood fabrics that welcome the water to develop further inland.”

Captain America carrying baby Thor. Batman taking a photo besides a little Batman. Cookie Monster on T-shirts. The New York Comic Con 2010 definitely changed the meaning of "comic con".

The last year’s New York Comic Con was definitely paled as compared to this year’s event. Thanks to the early Twitter Buzz, the NYCC 2010 got a long line of people ready to take their passes for the event.
