The Agrarian Dream . . .

WRITTEN REPORT/ DESCRIPTION : The Iconic City ,The Agrarian Dream . . . Can we have it both ways? New York City, an ever-growing organism an amalgam of pasts, presents and potential futures …# A city whose relationship to Time is to master it, to beat it, even to deny its’ existence whole-heartedly. The city of today consists primarily of a closed-system of transitional paths as well as an antithetical yet parallel system of inhabitable chambers … there is no threshold. artefact British Headquarters Map plans 1 and 2 of New York circa 1782 a topographic map dated from pre-grid manhattan.

past-to-future-to-present

Surface Farm-System-Land-

scape for the City of New York.

july 2012

the project calls for a raised +

porous topography to be introduced

to the current borough of Manhattan.

this ‘surface’ is to function primarily

as an artificial ground upon which the food

[or a fraction thereof] required to sustain

the inhabitants is grown …

and a little fun + recreation can be sought as well!

so [then] what?

anticipating the radical change which would result from such a proposition, an immediate re-writing of specific sections of the new york building code is essential – existing buildings as well as future/ new buildings are given a set of guidelines to follow … multiple interpretations arise.
