05: Extraction

Extraction sustains our society. As the world becomes more urban and further removed from the landscapes that supply its raw materials and energy needs, more and more land is mined, blasted, dug, and drilled each year. How do these extraction landscapes fit into larger urban social, economic, and ecological frameworks? How can we bridge the disconnect between the city and its extractive hinterland?

Promenada

Promenada reimagines a banal former thoroughfare through a series of topographical modifications, reclaiming urban space for pedestrians and civic infrastructure. The manipulation of layered surfaces slows the flow of pedestrians, allowing spaces for pause, contemplation, and gathering.

Scenario 6: Migration – open call closing soon

This has been a year of migration, in what promises to be a new normal of shifting populations and whole landscapes responding to changing climate and grinding conflict. SCENARIO 6: Migration is seeking critical essays, provocations, and design projects that explore the relationship between migration patterns and our designed landscape. The open call prompts us to think about the spatial, social and environmental impacts of flows, habitats, coasts, borders, and populations on the move.
