Think tank proposes creating wetlands with scrapped ships
BY ELI ROSENBERG
The Brooklyn Paper
"A futuristic design firm wants to bring Navy ships back to Brooklyn to save the borough from the next natural disaster — but first it wants to sink them."
"Mitchell Joachim and his team of mad designists at the Navy Yard’s architectural think-tank Terreform ONE have come up with an otherworldly plan to break down old US warships and submerge the parts to create a man-made wetland in the Buttermilk Channel that the team says could protect Brooklynites from future deluges."
EVENT: The Metropolitan Museum in New York.
