The Blue Mussels Voice

Is it worthwhile reaching out to organisms we cannot communicate with, and that most likely do not need our presence?
How may we listen to critters other than us, and how can this make sense within urban development? In seeking answers to these questions, this essay is dedicated to one small and challenged creature – the blue mussel.

Work title: Enhancing marine biodiversity in urban seas: Towards
a possible framework, design toolkit, and a common language

To reach sustainable bluescapes, the many different stakeholders within urban waterfront renewals need

a common conceptual framework. By providing step-by-step guidelines and principles from preparation, planning and implementation, as well as an adaptive further development and maintenance, we draw up

a framework, a toolkit forming the beginning of a common language for a marine friendly landscape architecture in urban sea areas.
