LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MAGAZINE: Freight on the Range / by Conor O'Shea

Jeff Link interviews Conor O'Shea / Hinterlands Urbanism and Landscape for the article "Freight on the Range: In agricultural cities of the future, bison roam the industrial plain." An excerpt from the article is below:

"A 100-year proposal for transforming the ecology and economy of northeastern Illinois reveals an entirely new way of conceptualizing the American metropolis. Instead of the glass skyscrapers, rebar-bonded bridges, and pigeon-roosting subway platforms of the modern city, Logistical Ecologies presents an intricately designed freight and agriculture hub where bison graze grassy hills, corn and soybeans are sowed and shipped to Asian markets, and farmers live side by side in new prairie settlements."
