Port covington East Waterfront Park | Baltimore, MD
The East Waterfront Park represents Phase One of a comprehensive transformation of the Port Covington peninsula in Baltimore. The design of the park provides an active interface between a dynamic urban realm and the rejuvenated water’s edge. The language of the landscape emerges from a careful weave of cultural and ecological networks, historic artifacts and maritime program, which is meant to connect the dots between human and ecological performativity resulting in a more resilient and interactive public realm. A feature of the Park is the reinterpretation of a derelict pier into a linear, interactive ecological experience. New program floats over the existing pier architecture to create innovative new experiences. The Archeological Pier, as it has become known, will also house the new water shuttle landing with a pedestrian bridge connection over to the reconfigured harbor edge.
