Municipal Landfill Transformation

Former Municipal Landfill; New York

OBJECTIVES

Roux designed the transformation of an island with an 80-acre former municipal landfill into rare maritime grassland habitat. The design provides diverse nesting habitat for avian species, coastal dune habitat, and bioengineering elements to stabilize the island’s severely eroded shoreline. The island received a 15-foot storm surge during Hurricane Sandy with no erosion or loss of vegetation.
