PASSIVE RECREATION PLATFORM
FLUSHING CREEK, NYC - 2019
The Passive Recreation Platform (PRP) is a floating research station currently docked in Flushing Creek. Inspired by limited public access to Flushing Creek, PRP, comprised of two 10’x6’ floating docks, creates experimental habitat for both people and marine life. Modeled off Newtown Creek Alliance’s Living Dock, PRP is fashioned with the same milk-crate sized cutouts for native seagrass, but prioritizes space for humans to engage in passive recreation activities on top of the dock, such as lounging, BBQing, and picnicking.
