Mary Miss / City as a Living Laboratory’s project Broadway: 1,000 Steps, supported by the Rauschenberg Foundation’s AIC grant program, is an initiative to establish Broadway as the new “green corridor” of New York City. Twenty “hubs” dispersed along the length of Broadway will serve as sites for collaboration between Mary Miss Studio, research scientists, municipal policy makers, and local community groups.
The central message of the project is that “nature is everywhere and in action at all times, that the city is an urban ecosystem, that an innumerable number of small decisions over time have shaped the environment to be the one we inhabit today, and that our decisions (behavioral choices) impact the future of all of nature.”
