Vertical Landscape, Green Manhattanism
Thursday May 16, 1996 – Saturday June 29, 1996
West 8, Adriaan Geuze
In their exhibition at Storefront, West 8 proposed the idea that nature could be harnessed in the city to create vertical habitats not dissimilar from skyscrapers. These proposed vertical landscapes were exemplified by a design proposal for Petrosino Park, a public park adjacent to Storefront, in which an enclosure of vegetation that would create an interior environment was envisioned.
