On a post industrial site in Brooklyn, New York, Super docking imagines a self sustaining working waterfront that is the center for green and clean industries that are incubators for new technologies. The site is adaptable to climate change, geared for living infrastructure and seamless land and water interface. The project showcases the historic dry docks, which are dedicated to 3D digital printing and scanning, ecological testbeds, and moving raw materials and finished goods on and off the site. The surface of the site mitigates land and sea, clean water and pollutants, combined sewage overflow and sets the terrain for pedestrian movement through the site. The project is a living vascular membrane, it is a ecological industrial landscape established to manage both man made and natural systems, while considering land use needs and the urgency to aggregate innovation for social and economic diversity. It encourages research, both as an industrial activity and as an ecological activity to promote new products and areas of industry.
