shoutout to @xt_marie for thinking ahead — elements of her award-winning 2009 landscape architecture thesis project Fulton Culture Park have been partly realized as Richmond’s Low Line. Visiting after 2 years of growth, the revitalized greenway has filled in along the James River and Kanawha Canal, using the trestles as a framework for connecting Great Shiplock Park and the Virginia Capital Trail. Christina’s thesis also proposed remediation and cultural reuse of the Fulton Gas Works itself, including the gasometer and surrounding buildings — still unrealized, but the vision is there...

Recently I had the cool honor of contributing an architectural review to the National Academy of Design for their newly launched publication @nadnowjournal. The NAD NOW platform launched today as a refreshing current of dialogue and reportage for and by renowned National Academicians of art and architecture, past and present, spearheaded by my good friend, the one and only @zap_de.
My lil write-up of the @icavcu by @stevenhollarchitects was a step out of the comfortable realm of visual expression, though ended up being a nice exercise in using my words in long form for a change. But, I couldn’t leave well enough alone, and maybe as an attempt at some kind of proof I also created a series of short film clips to go with the text (see above). Shout out to my love @xt_marie for the video assist.
Huge credit to the badass @zap_de for her creative vision on the journal, and for the trust in my perspective among very good company. I hope my piece helps illuminate the impact of Richmond’s ICA as I’ve come to see it: an example of how purposeful public design gestures can immediately affect positive change as a bridge between multiple communities.
