Reclaiming Asphalt

An Interactive exercise in how buildings along the Spenard Corridor might better relate to the street and also provide for safer mobility for cyclists and pedestrians. A testing ground for better streetscapes and more interesting, creative buffers. A tangible showcase for creative ideas to replace excessive parking/asphalt.


Chad Taylor and Vania Hawkins of Intrinsic Landscapes will explore Phase II of Reclaiming Asphalt in the Summer of 2017. Chad and Vania will team up with other local artists to explore interesting streetscape scenarios on the west side of Spenard Road from 34th to 36th Avenue. Their work will engage neighborhood and community members for conversations about design and will also offer opportunities for hands on participation and community building.
