The Northern Bobwhite, the state game bird, is non-migatory indicator species that is native to Tennessee. In this project, I propose northern bobwhites as the main protagonist for a once-flooded sector of downtown Nashville. A direct response to the 2010 Flood, "Aviary Indicators for Remidiary Species" re-imagines an industrial-commercial site prone to flooding as an rehabitated poplar-grassland, suggesting a new urban landscape typology.
This second year studio project suffers a little bit from inconsistency and post-rationalization. The majority of the studio was focused on using phytotechnology as an intervention strategy. To be honest, the bobwhites were introduced later in the project. While that gap hasn't been mended in this version of the project, I am really proud of the research I've done and the skills I've learned during this semester.
