The project is an optimistic look at the restoration of an existing brownfield site in the rust belt region to suggest how landscape architecture could engage in and help accelerate the restoration of the broken landscape, the rehabilitation of the habitat, and help remediate human health.
Due to the decline of the industrial society, we are now in a state where the next century will be dealing with brownfields issues. We landscape architects don’t do green fields anymore but deal with our mess. We are looking at this kind of post-industrial site as a new kind of green to fix up the landscape and the habitat.
In order to accomplish the envision of using landscape architecture and bioremediation to revise industrial ruins, the project suggests the use of mushrooms and plants for effective soil remediation and the accelerated landscape and habitat restoration through a scaffolding like artificial landscape architectural device. The project prefers planning an extended time frame process that allows the design to sprout, change and constantly shape the site. With natural elements such as mushrooms and plants conquering space and acting as curators, the anthropocentric has been decentralized. The initiative of design is giving back to nature.
