Dan Barasch

15 Jul, 2014

Dan Barasch gives a talk on a project that he is working on with his partner, James Ramsey. Together they have taken an abandoned trolley terminal in underground New York City and have begun to design a park that will thrive there. With the help of modern technology to bring the sunlight into the underground, this park and its vegetation will be able to live even in winter.

If my grandparents and my parents were really focused on building the city up and out, I think my generation is focused on reclaiming the spaces that we already have, rediscovering our shared history, and reimagining how we can make our communities more interesting, more beautiful and more just.
