About the event

Mary Miss’s project City as Living Laboratory aims to establish Broadway as the “green corridor” of New York City, with twenty “hubs” dispersed along the length of the avenue serving as sites of collaboration between City as Living Laboratory, research scientists, municipal policy makers, and local community groups. Exploring the city as an urban ecosystem, with nature everywhere and in action at all times, it emphasizes the ways in which innumerable small decisions shape the environment we inhabit today, and exposes behavioral choices which have a decisive impact on our collective future. As the project progresses, the intention is to inspire future endeavors to make sustainability tangible through installations and programming by various artists, environmental designers, scientists, and other collaborators along this corridor.
