Coloredge's Part in The Billion Oyster Project Staten Island, NY
One of the most ambitious projects to take place in the New York harbor is happening right beneath the water that surrounds us. The Billion Oyster Project aims to clean up the waters around New York City to make them more friendly for oysters, which helps to clean the water and even protect the coast against storm damage. The installation also features the Living Breakwater project, an innovative coastal green infrastructure project designed to reduce or reverse erosion and damage from storm waves, improve the ecosystem health of Raritan Bay and encourage stewardship of our nearshore waters and generally enhance people’s experience of the shoreline of southern Staten Island. Developed by SCAPE Landscape Architecture, the oyster restoration and stewardship components of the projects are being developed in collaboration with the Billion Oyster Project. As the Nonprofit finds ways to redesign the existing aquariums at the St. George Terminal of the Staten Island Ferry, they enlisted Coloredge to help produce and install informative and vibrant graphics while design deliberation happens.
The panels contain important and interesting information about the history of the harbor, which will be seen by the more than 70,000 passengers that pass through the terminal daily.
