Tethered Floating Island, Section

Responding to the magnetism caused by the pull of the sun and the moon, these islands bob and sway in the water. “The Pull: Wild Gardens at Paerdegat” addresses the rejuvenation and ecological enhancement of the polluted waters, shoreline, and uplands of Paerdegat Basin in Brooklyn NY. A steel overlook shaped like a magnet stands at the head of the basin to “pull” the forces of nature back into the city. The overlook, plantings, grading, shoreline, and garden spaces express the dynamic forces activated when the “magnet” swept over the site.
