- Anywhere that’s GOOD in the world
- July 6, 2013
There’s a new generation of catalyst infrastructure projects popping up around the world. Ranging in scale from the 1.5 mile High Line in New York to the 22-mile Atlanta Beltline to the 52-mile Los Angeles River Revitalization, these catalyst projects adapt and reuse underutilized infrastructure like abandoned railroads, industrialized riverfronts, gridlocked freeways and channelized waterways as renewed conduits of urban life. More importantly, they are challenging our cultural assumptions about infrastructure and public space, supporting grassroots movements for change, and empowering political leadership to become champions of these new standards. Some of the most amazing and more replicable projects out there are lesser known. Tell me what’s going on in your community - let’s see what we can uncover. Over the next month, tweet me a picture and a web link if you have one to @ryangravel. I’ll consolidate the list and post them to GOOD in July.
