Making space

This is an effort to care for old industry and dirty earth — and to display the spectacle of the work that is needed to rehabilitate the places we so diligently have grounded down. Our suggestions are simple — a cleansing marshland with a narrow red bridge, a floating garden, nurseries for the plants of future parks, and three pavilions providing modest views, roofs, and toilets for the non-non-humans. This site, like most these days, is a patchwork of space left over from planning for humans, producing strange corridors and appendixes. So what better way is there to plan for it than making space for something other than us? Refusing the site and re-fusing it. Showing some grace and leaving be. But not before we’ve picked up our own trash; so that maybe we’ll be welcomed back in the future.
