In New York City, the Freshkills Park site, is in a continual phase change from landfill to park, a conceptual and physical reclamation. UnCommon Pages re-imagines the invasive Phragmites (the common reed) as a generative material, and with that, is a form of recycled art. Rather than introducing new materials to express recycling or upcycling, this project uses plants that are now growing on the site naturally, looking to the future of the land and expressing the possibilities in renewal.
