“Clean these rivers?!” a question or an exclamation…?
This is an amazing idea…to clean New York Cities Hudson and East River….to the extent that you could swim in them?!
Yes, check out Archie, Jeff and Dong’s idea for a public, floating, swimming pool that actually cleans the river.
The project also spotlights the idea that Designers can and should launch ideas to benefit our communities…because that is what we are trained to do but are rarely given the opportunity….because we usually have a client whose ideas come first.
The idea of the Designers as client is amazing. Initiating a project to solve a community or environmental issue, exploring and developing ideas and solutions from a sophisticated professional perspective with community and environmental wellbeing at the heart can have amazing results.
The question I have is how do they keep the lights on and the rent paid?! Seriously, how do you do that part?
