Title:
Pocket Park

Author:
Milan Rai

Description:
I urged the city planners to rethink public spaces and provided alternatives solutions. My advocacy led me to the issues of land encroachment and urbanization that have shrunk open spaces both in spatial and democratic terms. My eco-social art practice embodies landscape architecture, socio-ecological processes, and urban design with a critical eye toward green remediation. This previously encroached land is not turned into a pocket park. It breathes hope in between the dense concretes offering a placid transition to the passers-by.
