This was a graduate student project by Jacob Boswell for Jane Amidon's LARCH 750 course, Spring 2006.
"The studio asked that we look at ways to incorporate continuous productive landscapes into specific urban situations. My proposal looks at ways in which the City of Pittsburgh might utilize it's large amount of public park space, as well as it's wealth of remnant industrial infrastructure in order to balance it's shrinking population. The project proposed an ephemeral use of park space for floricultural production, balancing the parks budget while providing a new source of industrial employment. My final proposal investigates how the floricultural industry might begin to inhabit remnant infrastructure abandoned by the steel industry." ----Jacob Boswell
