This photo (taken by Ben Haber) is from the Berlin Summer School exchange program between Humboldt University in Berlin and the CUNY Graduate Center. My research group (partially shown) compared the Gowanus Canal and Media Spree redevelopment projects. From the left: Young-Hwan Byun, your’s truly, Mathias Nagalein and researcher who led us on a walk along the Media Spree, Ingo Bader.
In May of 2011, Neil Smith and I led a walking tour through the Gowanus Canal area. Here, we are stopped on the Carroll Street Bridge, discussing the production of nature. This walking tour was part of a Future Farmers exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum, which was accompanied by many “on your feet” trips around the city.
