Julia Watson talks with Marcus Fairs about the intersting and beautiful installation Rewilding the American Meadow. From Dezeen:
Marcus Fairs: How did the project come about?
Julia Watson: Rewilding the American Meadow at Rockefeller Center’s North Plaza and Summer at The Rink are part of an idea we have that envisions entities with significant global property portfolios becoming catalysts for mitigating climate change in our urban environments.
By matching indigenous, rare, and threatened plant species to local property portfolios around the globe, these urban rewilding projects could replace the homogenous and predominantly ornamental urban landscapes that form the backdrops of our cities today.
