July 6, 2013

There’s a new generation of catalyst infrastructure projects popping up around the world. Ranging in scale from the 1.5 mile High Line in New York to the 22-mile Atlanta Beltline to the 52-mile Los Angeles River Revitalization, these catalyst projects adapt and reuse underutilized infrastructure like abandoned railroads, industrialized riverfronts, gridlocked freeways and channelized waterways as renewed conduits of urban life. More importantly, they are challenging our cultural assumptions about infrastructure and public space, supporting grassroots movements for change, and empowering political leadership to become champions of these new standards. Some of the most amazing and more replicable projects out there are lesser known. Tell me what’s going on in your community - let’s see what we can uncover. Over the next month, tweet me a picture and a web link if you have one to @ryangravel. I’ll consolidate the list and post them to GOOD in July.

Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    Part of San Francisco's Master Plan for the near future could end up being a model for low-lying coastal communities everywhere (particularly post Sandy). This city's "managed retreat" plan includes moving or removing the four lane Great Highway that runs the length of Ocean Beach and returning what is now asphalt to the dunes. That would be progress for public space and for facing the realities of climate change.
