Title : META-Form

Submitted for the Brooklyn Water Works Competition, META-form is a system of infrastructure and landscape modification that re-conceptualizes the relationship between wastewater, ecology, and recreation, using stormwater as a catalytic resource that enriches the Gowanus ecosystem. The proposal puts forth a prototypical site solution that conflates remediation with recreation, and is deployed on a series of sites surrounding the Gowanus Canal, remediating toxic water and soil over time.
