    FeedForward 4: The System as Ecosystem

    Leaving from: BMW Guggenheim Lab
    Traveling to: New Jersey Meadowlands
    Mode of transportation: van/boat

    What if nature and culture were no longer considered two separate systems? What sort of city might you really see?
    Creative consulting and design collaborative spurse will lead a voyage by boat to the heart of New York City’s most astonishing postnatural landscapes. On the Hackensack River, where comfort meets waste, we’ll navigate through our future ecosystem: a remediated swamp, a wastewater treatment plant, a mall, a housing development, a capped landfill, and a Superfund site.
