Arch wikstrom hazel villena fa19 04 timekeeper


The Timekeeper is a co-op close loop agronomic center of the future, seeking to preserve what we might have lost by that time. This engineered mini-environment of its own is designed to be a kit of parts that sequentially takes care of nature and fosters horticultural practices, both from the past and emerging ones. The timekeeper hovers on the intersection of Grand and Broadway, targeting merging flows of people that come from primary Manhattan neighborhoods through this critical intersection, including the 68 million tourists that visit SoHo every year. Both locals and tourists are intended to come together into the space to contribute to this mini-environment and foster the relevance of having a dedicated place that is only to cherish and take care of nature, in which both sides (humans and nature) come to a middle ground functioning reciprocally.
