The recently published Case Study Briefs include two premier riverfront parks, a SITES-certified heritage site, and – a first for our case study library – a pop-up park and restaurant. The projects demonstrate the transformative power of public spaces as well as innovative design strategies related to adaptive reuse, temporariness, and resilient stormwater management and flood protection. In fact, both Hunter’s Point South and Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park were tested by extreme events that occurred during their construction.

To more effectively represent the Case Study Briefs as the scholarly product that they are, we recently added a digital object identifiers (DOI) to each. DOIs provide a permanent and consistent link to online, scholarly content and are used widely to identify academic, professional, and government publications, including journal articles, research papers, and reports. DOIs facilitate the citing of online content, which is particularly important for academic journals, student theses, and other research papers.
