Occupation: Boundary: Art, Architecture and Culture at the Water

In-Person Forum


construction in the distance

Join us for a book talk examining the ways that art and architecture activate the public realm. Occupation:Boundary features historical and contemporary images of architecture, landscape and urban design at the border between the city and the sea. At a moment that demands innovative approaches to the transformation of urban waterfronts, and strategies to foster resilient boundaries, architect Cathy Simon recounts her work and that of other designers at and around the water’s edge in service to the public realm.
