Atrisco Oxbow Open Space Master Plan, 2008.

Concept: Abandoned land becomes an integration of wild and urban spaces, in which all open space within the area is linked through a series of patchworks and corridors. The Atrisco Oxbow Open Space Plan connects cultural and natural habitats through a re-development of vacant land into various types of open green spaces (patchworks) and reclamation of empty space alongside the utilitarian Arenal Main Irrigation Canal (green corridor) of Albuquerque.

The Arenal Main Canal becomes an artery which sustains the community, offering a multiplicity of uses- urban gardens, athletic fields, pocket parks, children’s playgrounds, and most importantly, reconstructed natural habitats, all coexisting peacefully along the corridor, fully integrating the natural and cultural needs of the area.
