Human Nature

This project seeks to break the stigma and marginalization of mentally ill people in Poughkeepsie by linking consciousness and landscape.

Historically, consciousness and landscape have been idealized seen as perfectible, hence the Hudson River School and what it has been labeled as normal behavior. In this view, anomalies are described as scars or illness.

“Human Nature” creates a system of adaptive landscapes and adaptive services. The less than perfect landscapes of the Valley are paired with the abandoned brick industrial buildings in the city. The proposal suggest a way of looking at the natural and built environment as an interconnected social-landscape, through which we all adapt and change. Urban ecology and social justice are hybridized.
