participated in the City of New York’s international landscape design
competition Fresh Kills: Landfill to Landscape, a competition devoted
to redesigning and eventually reclaiming the world’s largest landfill.
I worked with the Center for Land Use Interpretation (at the invitation of RIOS
Architects of Los Angeles) to design an interpretive tourist trail that winds
through the landfill and explores it’s varied infrastructure and dynamic
internal processes. This Interpretive Transect features such highlights as gas,
fluid, and temperature monitoring stations, along with an internal landfill
viewing tunnel—where visitors can descend into the depths to view layers
of trash through special viewing windows.
