SWA Group has a new book on landscape infrastructure. Nate Berg talks with Gerdo Aquino, co-editor of the book:
"'There are all these underutilized corridors like transmission corridors, alleyways, remnant spaces around freeway on- and off-ramps,' Aquino says. 'They serve a municipal function, but they could also be more multi-functioning.'
He says the concept has been kicking around for about 15 yeas, but has only recently begun to catch on and play out in actual designs. It's a two-birds-with-one-stone mentality that's become more politically feasible as funding gets tight and infrastructure continues to crumble."
