The goal of this project is to rethink the amount of water that New Orleans receives as a valuable natural resource which can be stored, reused, and incorporated into the public sphere. This is to address the fear of water that many people of this city hold, and to instead encourage a positive relationship with water.
One strategy is to introduce water infrastructures such as a water treatment plant at an intermediate scale and to incorporate these into the educational curriculum. This is to create an open dialogue of the water treatment process in the city.
An additional goal of my site is to increase the condition for the reemergence of biodiversity. This was tackled through the lens of the ecotone, the transition zone between two biological communities. These urban ecotones are formally established at four different scales, weaving waterscapes in and out of the urban grid.
