city wild

This image is part of a timeless perspective that reaches back 400 years ago to a land called Mannahatta, which was lush with hills, canals and biodiversity. But in the early 19th century, a new order was imposed that leveled the landscape to a grid framework and set the pace for the “Great Acceleration,” a time when humans became the most powerful influence on global ecology. Our proposal for the future in New York City, still open with possibilities, takes the existing city topography and projects a nostalgic layer of green desire. In this rendition of Community Board M-03, building heights are inverted into the adjacent street grid, and city blocks are a place for the wild to flourish.
