GRID TALK : GIVING A VOICE TO ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURES IN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
An inquiry on how, why, and where our energy is made and how it is conveyed. How do understand better, this ubiquitous life giving system which is so prevalent in our public realm? Can we build appreciation for these systems which sustain us? Is there a way designers can be advocates for policies around energy?
Join me in my graduate thesis project which takes us through electric origins, the New England power system, New York State independent system and it's ties to New York City where we encounter an old system which boggles and awes: The New York Steam System. At the end of an energetic journey we land on a simple intervention which sheds light on an underground powerhouse and it's need to be heard.
It's time to be an advocate for dynamic energy systems and the humans who use them.
