MAVERICK MILLS EAST BOSTON, MA The repurposing of a low lying industrial site in the heart of East Boston into a comprehensive piece of infrastructure to mitigate storm water. This landscape incorporates a series of constructed drumlins to protect against storm surges, while also increasing the amount of permeable surfaces within the area to encourage absorption. Said green spaces accommodate both passive and active recreation that fluctuate in response to inundation levels.

DESIGN STRATEGY

By excavating to the water’s edge the remaining soil can be used to elevate the on site buildings to protect against sea level rise, as well as construct various landforms to emulate the Boston Harbor Islands that mitigate against storm surge. Softening the edge allows for more innundation and creates active landscapes that can accomodate a variety of programs, while promoting new opportunities for unique vegetation across the site.

Maverick Mills is a blend of commercial, residential and infrstructural practices within the same site. While the lower level of the landscape varies in access depending on weather and time, the elevated circulation allows for continual experience of the site, despite inundation events.

BUSSEY BROOK MEADOW ARNOLD ARBORETUM BOSTON, MA The transformation of Bussey Brook Meadow through the utilization of the existing processes, such as storing floodwater, producing oxygen, and filtering storm water runoff. Harnessing the hydrological flows of Brook Meadow exclusively through topography manipulation will encourage natural infiltration, organic plant growth, and remediation.

Water Pollution Levels of dissolved zinc and copper consistently exceed the applicable water quality criteria in seventy percent of the samples taken by the BWSC from Bussey Brook. The samples also revealed concentrations of E. coli and fecal coliform bacteria within the brook and storm water runoff. The sedges, rushes and grasses located within the meadow indicate the high degree of pollution, as they are first responders in a disturbed wetland.

As precipitation events vary seasonally, each Spring Bussey Brook floods into the meadow. This innundation of water provides a unique habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife. Bussey Brook meadow is ideal for floods due to the low-lying nature of the site, which results in constant ground saturation. Thus water cannot run off quickly enough to stop accumulation.

ON SITE CONTAMINANTS

The combination of first responder plants and various forms of litter made it abundantly clear that there is a significant amount of pollution throughout the site. This lead me to create a catalog of the contaminants to better help inform my design strategy. Controlling the hydrological flows, as well as points of access to the site would manage the amount of pollution within Bussey Brook meadow.

THE GOWANUS CANAL RED HOOK, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK The softening of Red Hook’s edge conditions incorporates protection for energy related infrastructure against sea level rise and climate change. Implementing a theoretical surface structure, derived from a multiscalar investigation of infrastructural failures will help negate these adverse consequences.

CASCADING FAILURES Multi-Scalar Reconnaisssance

To understand the infrastructural systems of New York, I first had to understand the larger systems which they are part of. Through the investigation of three case studies, the BP Oil Spill, Northeast Blackout of 2003 and Hurricane Sandy, I was able to interpret the vulnerablilites of liquid fuels, electricity and natural gas. It is not until after disater strikes that the weaknesses within our infrastructure become apparent.

Revealing Deer Island’s Forgotten Pasts

Lying in the distance of Boston’s Harbor is a model of exemplary environmental protection and stewardship; Deer Island houses the second largest wastewater treatment facility in the United States. Despite the necessary ecological service that it has provided the region for ever 300 years, this landscape witnessed a deep and complicated history of tragedy that is no longer visible. Many marginalized populations and institutions inhabited Deer Island’s shores, each leveling the one before it. Our goal with this demonstration is to reveal the stories of injustice that have long been isolated and buried by redevelopment.

Native American Internment Camp 1675-1676

Prior to King Philip’s War, many Native Americans converted to Christianity and followed the zealous Congregationalist minister from Roxbury named John Elliot. Despite their pledge to Christianity, colonists were skeptical of the loyalty of newly converted Native Americans. On October 13, 1675, approximately 500 converted Nipmucks were forced to make the 30-mile journey from their homes in South Natick to internment camps located on Deer Island. Without proper shelter, food, clothing, and medicine on this barren island, the Indians fell susceptible to starvation and disease, culminating in the deaths of more than half of the population within mere months. Additionally, slavers often came to the island to steal Native Americans to be sold into human trafficking in both Barbados and Jamaica. After being eventually released, the majority of the surviving Indians were too sick to appreciate their freedom. Today, indigenous Wampanoag’s participate in a Sacred Paddle down the Charles River to the Boston Harbor Islands in traditional mishoons (canoes) made using ancient tools and techniques. The 30-mile journey is meant to commemorate their ancestors’ sacrifices during King Philip’s War.

UPDATED SIGNAGE Irish Famine begins

Irish Famine & Quarantine Hospital 1847-1849

Deer Island Quarantine Hospital Typhus outbreak

Oct. 1847

For more than 150 years, the island was left untouched until 1847, when 25,000 Irish immigrants fled the Great Famine only to end up on the shores of Boston, facing yet another tragic fate. On their journey to the Americas, thousands were plagued by “ship fever” a form of Typhus. Fearing an epidemic, the city of Boston erected a medical building to quarantine the infected immigrants on Deer Island. In just two years, the Deer Island Quarantine Hospital and Almshouse serviced nearly 5,000 people. For many suffering from illness, this was the first and last site in America people would see. Approximately sixteen percent of patients on the island died and were buried in the Rest Haven Cemetery, once located on the island. Even before the English settlers were able to fully grasp the severity of health risks brought on by the famine immigrants, the Irish were not welcome due to their beliefs in Catholicism. Those who made it into the city of Boston were forced to live in conditions no better than the ships they came on, further perpetuating illness and disease.

Deer Island House of Industry Frank Leslie’s Sunday Magazine Article

Apr. 1880 May 1884

All prisoners from South Boston transferred to Deer Island

Sept. 1896

The almshouse was converted into a juvenile detention center where both boys and girls could learn discipline through farm work and agriculture. The name then changed unofficially to the House of Industry. Eventually, in 1880, the island was yet again repurposed to house Deer Island Prison, also known as Deer Island House of Industry, ironically in remembrance to the almshouse and its supposed penal character. Majority of the prisoners were sentenced to short term convictions, for crimes such as drunkenness, drug possession, disorderly conduct, larceny and more. Again the prison underwent another name change in 1896 to the House of Corrections. In the early 1900s, physicians conducted a series of clinical tests on volunteers at the prison in an attempt to create a vaccine to prevent the flu. It wasn’t until 1991 that the 1,500 prisoners were transferred to South Boston and the building demolished to make way for the new wastewater facility.
