The work of this group is based on the idea of rehabilitating abandoned industrial sites throughout Cincinnati by remaking them with public greenspace and recreation. These sites would be linked with existing parks and green-space by means of existing rails and new bike and pedestrian trails. On the Milacron Site, the group proposes a series of solutions centered around creating significant green spaces and "green infrastructure" among existing and new mixed-use buildings, including strategies for integrating local and/or on-site food production, distribution, and consumption. A primary design strategy illustrates techniques to "deconstruct of the big (retail/manufacturing) box" within a context of diverse work, live, eat, and play opportunities.
