Jones Falls Baltimore re-discovered

Alchemy of an urban estuary. Revealing and transforming public infrastructure along the Jones Falls Corridor in Downtown Baltimore

“This project transforms mono-functional infrastructure into multi-functional systems, addressing storm water issues and creating an identity for the largely uninhabited corridor that bisects Baltimore. The unique space proposed is comprised of a series of wetland parks, formed through revealing and adapting the layered history of the Jones Falls River and expressway. The once buried and problematic infrastructure is re-interpreted as regenerative space that supports ecological and cultural functions, engaging both sides of the city.”

Puddlescape: Freshwater Marsh Urban Matrix

Expanses of flat, vacant land make the Lower Ninth Ward look like a wet meadow. This project proposes a transformation of the landscape matrix that allows the Lower Ninth Ward to regain its vibrant neighborhood density while appreciating the water and plants as valuable resources. From sidewalks to ponds, the ground is demonstrated to perform as a sponge and a reservoir across multiple scales and materials, revealing the presence, movement, poetry, and productivity of water.
