This Linear City imagines current urban neoliberalization extrapolated to a point such that all public property and space has been privatized. An increasibly segregated voting class’ refusal of the public appropriation of resources and space has rendered the air space over interstate highways a ‘last frontier’ of public space. Implementing these ‘free-spaces’ over the interstate creates a heterotopic spatial realm that is both removed and in opposition to the consumer city to which it is anchored. These structures house residential, public, and small-scaled commercial spaces in a concentrated and textured configuration that fosters grassroots community involvement. A dedicated plenum under the structure captures carbon monoxide and diverts it to storage and later production.
