Redefining Productivity

ByPhilip Shell

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This project re-introduces productive landscapes as a means of bringing the community together again, tying production to social capital. The design research explained here focuses production on the physical output of planted species as an opportunity for social interaction. By using three native plant species which produce fruit under limited supervision/maintenance, provide exceptional gathering places through planted form, have the potential for economic development, and conform in many ways to Loachapoka’s historic productive landscape, the designs focus on providing an opportunity for people to once more interact with one another within the landscape. The project proposes a 3.5 acre blueberry patch planted by students on school grounds, a 12 acre muscadine vineyard surrounding a gathering/performance stage, and a pecan grove strategically placed along the highway’s shoulder and throughout residents’ properties, forming a continuous network of trails.
