'Capturing Change: Freshkills Park' Opening Reception

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

6:30 p.m.8:00 p.m.

The Architectural League and Urban Omnibus present Capturing Change: Freshkills Park, an exhibition of photographs documenting the evolution of the world’s largest landfill-to-park project.

Produced by photographers participating in tours led by Freshkills Park staff, the images depict the transformation of the site from a 2,200-acre landfill into a unique urban ecosystem of carefully engineered rolling hills. The exhibition presents a selection of landscape and infrastructure photographs published by Urban Omnibus between 2014 and 2018, alongside new portraits depicting the people working to better understand the site. Documentation of the park’s master plan, designed by Field Operations, accompanies the photos, revealing the design process guiding the site’s restoration and reinvention as a site for recreation.

Capturing Change: Freshkills Park features the work of Cameron Blaylock, Andrea Callard, Kathryn Carse, Jo Cavallo, Michael Falco, Charles Giraudet, Nadège Giraudet, Stephen Mallon, Michael McWeeney, Imara Moore, Sean Sweeney, Kipp Wettstein, and Dmitry Zbarsky.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Freshkills Park Development Team.
