Resilient, Sustainable, Reverent
Award-winning landscape designers and architects respect the landscape through a light touch
A riverside park that can be walked, biked, and traveled via wheelchair takes a lot of engineering, and not just for today; New York State’s high projection for sea level rise in the Fjord Trail vicinity is 75 inches by the year 2100. Architects, artists, landscape designers, scientists, engineers, environmental remediation specialists, surveyors, and state agencies have collaborated and committed to studying the project area and designing a trail that will enhance the splendors of the Hudson Highlands while minimizing impact and focusing on resilient design—essential to all forms of planning in the face of climate change.
Fast + Epp is a structural engineering firm with a specialization in sustainably sourced timber bridges, like the one that will take Fjord Trail visitors over the Metro-North Railroad tracks at Breakneck Ridge.
