Description/Abstract

"The emergence of the derelict and urban flora is a result of a myriad of current economic, political, and social conditions. The combination of the two offers an opportunity to institute a performative hybrid architecture. The remediation of the site can be achieved through combining the systems of the industrial and the organism. Because urban land is no longer valued, one can use the spaces to begin to generate temporal emergent patterns. The industrial topography can be dissolved through structured derelict ecologies throughout the city."
