Blurring Boundaries

How can we blur the boundaries between the initial proposed site and potential sites around us? How can we blur the boundaries and increase connectivity between land and water? How can we blur boundaries and coexist within or outside invisible and visible boundaries set between humans with other sentient beings? How can inter-generational living become an opportunity to blur the boundaries revolving around notions of public and private space as well as related and found families?

With this line of questioning, our design intervention works toward restoring the Harlem River edge, recircuiting access to the waterfront, and reinvigorating the community through the historical and recreational activities that once populated the water edge as part of living.
