Healing the circulatory wound
Jones, Ryan D.
Master of Architecture
Healing the circulatory wound is not a project embedded in architectures contemporary preoccupation with romantic relationships between highway and building through circulatory fluxes, speeds, and flows. Rather, this thesis is about developing a more socially responsible urban relationship between the highway and its immediate context by understanding the latent potentials to be found in the lost spaces under, along, and above the circulatory network of our cities. This new urban relationship is one of healing rather than treatment. It is a process of organizing the future metropolis and its physical, social, economic, and political environment in order to create civic amenities at points of existing trauma.
