DES MOINES WATER WORKS PARK

Migration

In December, Ed led a team, with Christian Gabriel of Thomas Balsley Associates, in the final stage of the Des Moines Water Works Park Competition.

We put together an ambitous proposal that was only made possible by a fantastic London/US based team. Thank you to Christian Gabriel (Thomas Balsley Associates), Brett Douglas (Genus), Fred Schwartz (Frederic Schwartz Architects), Steven Handel (Green Shield Ecology), John Paul Goedken (JP-SE), Mark Land (Snyder Associates), Bryan Bertrand (CPMI), Tim Marshall (ETM), Helena Rivera (A Small Studio), and Matt Parker and Leo Thom (Room 60). Finally, without the design critique and stunning drawings of  Aaron Carpenter, Harry Bix, and Joe Sanders this proposal would have only been a jumble of ideas. Thank you.

BIENNALE OF LANDSCAPE URBANISM 2010

The Biennale of Landscape Urbanism opened on Saturday 25 September. Ed joined the opening event in Bat-Yam, Israel following several days of finalizing the Roaming Forest project with Yael Bar Maor.

Timing 2010, the Biennale of Landscape Urbanism, explores the tension between the temporary and the permanent and between the planned and the experienced. This municipal-led initiative, curated by Yael Moria-Klain and Sigal Barnir, offers the city of Bat-Yam as a laboratory for examining alternative uses for urban space. Landscape architects, artists and architects were invited to reinvent the spaces, processes and conditions that give rise to conditions of temporality in the city.

This project is a collaboration with Yael Bar Maor and Mike Dring. Selected and built for the Biennale of Landscape Urbanism, the Roaming Forest is an exploration of adaptation and temporality in the public realm of the city.
