What If There Were No Roads?
How would the garbage get taken away if some master planner came along and did away with all streets? The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) worked with students from The Child School to envision a future without roads. These drawings were made before students learned about Roosevelt Island’s AVAC facility to explore ideas of alternative garbage processing systems. The solutions presented here range from the practical to the totally fantastical.
