Earlier this week I attended a lunch and learn session where Jason McLennan, who is an influential voice in the green building movement, gave a presentation about the Living Building Challenge. Much of his talk was about how communities can greatly improve their environments by thinking about development in new ways.
This Kickstarter project is a perfect example of a new way of thinking about an old space. A pair of architects from NYC have come up with a concept for turning an old trolley terminal that is underground into a park underground.
Check out their video which includes some awesome visuals and renderings of the idea.
