Location: South Weymouth Air Station, Weymouth MA Massachusetts prisons have the second highest overcrowding rate in the country; one out of every 24 MA adults are under correctional control while one out of every one hundred US citizens are incarcerated (as of 2008). In 1972 Massachusetts instituted a pre-release program in an effort to lower recidivism rates by focusing more on rehabilitation and the transition from prison into the larger community. The South Weymouth Naval Air Station presents an opportunity to both mitigate Massachusettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prison overcrowding as well as expand upon a lineage of alternative prison facilities (MA examples: Pondsville Correctional Pre-release Program and MCI Plymouth) in an effort to re-think the relationship between the prisoner and their environment.

MA Endangered Species, their Landscapes & Associated Jobs

66% of animals on the Massachusetts list of endangered and threatened species favor successional or wetland habitat. This correlation stems from the continuing disappearance of grassland and wetland habitat throughout the state. Despite the high demand for these landscape types, restoration of grassland and wetlands is infrequent due to labor-intensive maintenance requirements. Given its available workforce, camp Weymouth is well poised to manage these two habitats types and consequently forge a new relationship between the correctional system and conservation.

Conservation Connections

Expansion and restoration of wetlands at South Weymouth Naval Air Station will occur in areas where soil hydrology indicates such improvements can be sustained over the long term. Former wetlands, identified by historical maps, as well as stream corridors (shown above) are where Camp Weymouth inmates will concentrate their efforts.

Conservation Connections

Camp Weymouth can serve as a model for future alliances between public or private institutions and adjacent conservation space in the South Shore area. Various owners of undeveloped land already practice this operational model; many more could assume this small scale partnering, cumulatively strengthening biocorridor networks throughout the region while also garnering public support and awareness for conservation.

academic work PROjECT: new haven wateRfRont COURSE: studio, fall 2011

Standing only a hundred feet away from New Haven’s waterfront you may not know it existed. What you would see instead are scenes of infrastructure, industry and parking; forgotten spaces characteristic of Long Wharf, the district that surrounds the harbor. Despite the fact New Haven was founded on the water and developed as its port grew, by the mid 1800’s the city began its slow retreat from the harbor as Eli Whitney and other industrialists built factories along inland rivers. By 1910 the old waterfront had been replaced by a new shoreline, having slowly crept into the bay. Given my years spent as a Yale undergraduate without ever visiting the waterfront, I felt compelled to make the waterfront more accessible, while simultaneously making it an alternative civic space to the Yaledominated New Haven Green, both in terms of its physical presence as well as its underlying psychology. In contrast to the New Haven Green, which is under constant surveillance by its powerful neighbor, I envisioned New Haven’s waterfront as neutral territory whose flexibility can encourage people of different classes, genders, ages and cultures to intermingle and appropriate the space through their own actions.

In bringing tidal flow past route 95, Long Wharf itself becomes an active site and increases the opportunities for neighborhood connections beyond the harbor’s edge. Together these elements transform a site dominated by parking to one with a variety of programs that meet the recreational and open space needs of the community.

ts

The various elements of the plan would be constructed over a number of years. The bike loop would first facilitate movement along the waterfront, while the subsequently added rail yard parks would increase access to Long Wharf. The restructuring and recontouring of the parking lots and tidal canal would be completed in the project’s final phase, paving the way for future development.

I

Filled with cars during the work day, the empty lots along the waterfront are transformed by the flowing tidal water and an alternative function. In specifying where water would enter the site I looked at existing parking patterns, which buildings were vacant or the city planed to remove, the lowest contours on site, and the 100 year flood zone. Tidal flows on site would vary according to the day and time and would be controlled by tidal gates.

Phase 1: Solar Installation Phase 2 (not shown): Interim Use

Location: Somerville, MA An abandoned dry cleaner and brownfield in Somerville, MA was the site of this group design project. Situated along commuter rail and what will soon be MBTA subway tracks, the effects of this former dry cleaning depot extend well beyond the boundaries of its narrow parcel. Due to spills in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s PERC has infiltrated groundwater and traveled along the downgradient towards the adjacent neighborhood. Our proposal, in conjunction with sub-slab remediation measures already in place, promotes a new occupation of the currently derelict site with a high level of activity and a low level of intervention. Simultaneously the site is planted with poplars to limit the movement of the plume. The trees are distributed around the affected area of the neighborhood to reduce the plume through transpiration, making way for a community park next to the newly renovated shops and function space.

Exerpt: Representations of a Gendered Landscape; Female interpretations of film and geography Term paper for Theory of Landscape Architecture, taught by Anita Berizbeita & John Beardesly

Over the past 30 years feminist theory has reconsidered the contributions, as well as the role, of female artists and designers within their respective fields. In questioning the under representation of women across all of the arts, theorists examined the female perspective and the potentially related content of their work, from modernists like Mary Cassat and Berte Morriset to German expressionists such as Kathe Kollwitz . At the same time, feminist geographers levied similar critiques on geographical scholarship, but for the purposes of including women and the spaces they frequented within the cannon of geography. These two strains of feminist criticism, art and geography, align as women construct and represent space within the visual arts. Particularly within film, women’s experiences of space likely influence their construction of space on the screen. Similarities in the representation and contextualization of space and landscape emerge in films that integrate themes of power and nature within their stories. Together, the gendered experiences of space and associations with the landscape produce distinct visions of space on film. While academic scholarship historically privileged masculine perspectives and authorship, feminist theory has been instrumental in questioning the assumptions held about men and women in order to expand critical discourse. Feminist geographers argue that spaces delimited to women should be reassessed as social-political spaces of importance and included within the cannon of geography . In expanding the focus of study beyond those places and landscapes typically associated with men, not only are women included in the discourse, but a clearer understanding of the relationship between space, gender, and power emerges. Central to our understanding of women’s relationships to the spaces they inhabit is their description or representation of space. At the urging of feminist geographers, travel logs and other primary source material written by women has been accepted into the academic cannon of geographical study, complimenting and contrasting sources written by male authors. Humanistic geographers argue that geographers can be neither objective nor neutral (Rose 1993, 41) in that they perceive and interpret place differently. Humanists go further to say that they attain greater objectivity through acknowledging their subjective backgrounds. Regardless of some geographer’s presumed ability to escape subjectivity, the theory assumes that people perceive place differently. Thus female authored geographical writing, while expanding the breath and focus of primary sources, also offers a different perspective on space, place and landscape, and shows that geography can be gendered in the authorship of geographical thought as well as in the delineation of space. Differences in written material authored by women as compared to that written by men can potentially be ascribed to the shared female identity of the authors. Feminist geographer Gillian Rose has written that “the feminist work on which I depend begins with the premise that identity is relational. Who I think I am depends on me establishing in what ways I am different from, or similar to, someone else. We position ourselves in relation to others,” (Rose 1993, 3). If identity is determined in relation to how you are similar or different from someone else, then the collective differences between men and women produce a shared female sense of identity. Feminists further assert that this relational identity is formed through “relations of power… discourses intersect so that certain identities are constituted as both more powerful and more valuable than others,” (Rose 1993). Identities influenced by access to or denial of power have spatial implications as well. In summing up the scholarship on spatial power dynamics, Lorraine Dowler notes: “feminist scholars determined that gender divisions of space serve to confine women’s access to knowledge, thereby reinforcing men’s power advantage,” (Lorraine Dowler 2005, 5). Thus space is both a tool to reinforce identities of power, but also an expression of the power relationship. Power relationships extend beyond our experiences of space to characterize the concepts of landscape and nature. Beth Meyer‘s paper The Expanded Field of Landscape Architecture explains the culturally ascribed associations between nature, landscape and women by first translating these ideas into binary sets. While Meyer speaks specifically about landscape architecture as well as the inclusion of women within the field, her explanation of binary sets can be easily transferred to geography. Man-nature, nature-culture, and landscape architecture-architecture construct relationships of


Feminist geography also addresses this binary of Same and Other, rational and illogical, where the same is defined as the masculine and the other “everything outside this, including the feminine,” (Rose 1993, 10). Rose identifies the origination of the same and other binary in male geographer’s desire to organize the world into discrete, rational categories. “From his position of power he tends to see them only in relation to himself. He understands femininity, for example, only in terms of its difference from masculinity….he sees them as what I shall term his Other,” (Rose 1993). An early example of the concept of the Other is displayed in John Ruskin’s 1864 lecture at Manchester Town Hall to a group of bourgeois women. Ruskin conflates the masculine tendency to view the feminine as what is not masculine along with the cultural associations between women and nature in his speech entitled “Of Queens’ Gardens.” Ruskin famously distinguishes between the male and female spatial spheres as that which is domestic (women) and that which encompasses everything else (men). In defining the home as the realm of women, he also likens women to flowers, whose “‘garden’, bounded by its walls, was the home, which he described as a private, domestic feminine space, quite separate from the male sphere of waged work and politics… his [Ruskin’s] metaphor of the garden indicates both the supposed naturalness of women’s spiritual beauty and the boundaries to their existence, “ (Rose 1993, 6). Ruskin’s delineation of gendered spaces both limits women to the home or garden as well as compares them to nature, but a nature that requires confinement and cultivation to maintain order. Gender associations between nature and landscape likely influence female constructions of space. If the landscape and our conception of it is influenced by both the gender-associated binaries that distinguish nature from man, as well as our gendered identities, then visual construction of space within film, as well as in design, might also display a uniquely gendered view of space and place. Different representations, descriptions, or constructions of space, particularly as they relate to power dynamics, should consequently express female auteur’s unique experiences. But how might female directed films represent constructions of space and associations to nature that reference relational identities? The films The Piano, The virgin Suicides, and Meek’s Cutoff portray female characters whose movements are restricted by a range of spatial boundaries. Nature and landscape can reference the binary sets described by Meyer, but also invert them so that nature and culture are symbols for freedom and repression. The construction of space through camera shot, angle, depth of field, and cinematography can also infer power relationships. Nature and the landscape, be it a New Zealand coastal colony, middle class suburb, or the untamed pioneer west, all assume a gendered association that relate to the construction of space within the film and the spaces experienced by the characters. The academy award-winning film The Piano, written and directed by Jane Campion, follows a mute woman and her young daughter as they move to 1850’s New Zealand for an arranged marriage. The landscape, both cultivated and wild, has a prominent presence in the film and frames a dichotomy between the open and restrictive spaces that Ada, the central character, inhabits. The constructed spaces within the film and the themes of nature also reference the larger themes of power and gender within the story. The film begins on the open sea, delivering ‘Ada’ to her arranged marriage. The sea envelops Ada as she moves to the center of the shot. It is unruly, free, expansive, and characterized by wide shots that create a sense of openness. The beach and sea, which later carries Ada away from her estranged husband at the film’s close, stands in stark contrast to the town inhabited by colonial New Zealanders. In comparison, the shots of the urbanized world are tight and restrictive....

WRITING SAMPLE

“Same” and “Other” from which we can deduce power dynamics between the two elements. Nature is associated with the feminine, instability, and wildness, while culture and urban is associated with the masculine and order or rationality. “[Western] societies share a dominant way of thinking that makes a distinction between nature and culture- culture being minimally defined as the transcendence, by means of thought and technology, of the natural givens of existence,” (Meyer 1997, 46). Nature, by contrast, is devalued, legitimizing the “destruction of natural resources necessary to support capitalism’s urban, industrial society,” (Meyer 1997, 46).
