League Prize 2015: Authenticity
Dan Adams and Marie Adams
Landing Studio
Somerville, MA

Dan Adams and Marie Adams founded Landing Studio in 2005. The studio focuses on developing “design tactics for positively integrating active global industries and infrastructures into their local contexts,” with particular emphasis on port facilities, ocean transport, and industrial ecologies.

Current and recent projects include P.O.R.T. (Publicly Organized/Privately Owned, Recreation Territory), a waterfront public event space and park in a maritime industrial dock at Rock Chapel Marine in Chelsea, MA; Infra-Space 1, which turns space beneath an elevated highway in Boston into parking, green space, and stormwater management site; and the design of a temporary light festival on an active industrial salt dock for the LUMEN film festival with Staten Island Arts.
