RUS Miami: Car Perversion
We are in Miami, a sprawl city based on the use of private vehicle for almost any city displacement. Thomas Jefferson, former founder father of the United States, worked hard to stablish a urban model of planing on the new country.
While a public survey system used a cartesian grid method to measure and divide every land of the country, an anti urban model was being inagurated. Jefferson thought on the corrupted europe cities and dreamt with a farm society without the problems of urban massification. But he did not think about the petrol prize.
Nowadays, most of the american cities as Miami suffer a lack of active public space. If we do not consider highways or parkings as public space .
Our aim is working with the rejected things of society and in Miami, car junk will be the main material for working.
