On the occasion of the first half of the freedom tunnels being buffed, spent a day alone painting the portrait of Robert Moses, the visionary behind the west side improvement project that extended the west side highway towards the Bronx and inhumed the exposed freight tracks underground. The rest is well known history and lore, as is the career of this magnanimous infrastructural tyrant. http://www.flickr.com/photos/gaiastreetart/6502240665/

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gaiastreetart/6291294312/in/photostream Portrait of Mayor Gijs van Hall and Corbusier interpolated by the phrase "What is the scale of a Human?" in dutch on an abandoned slab housing project in Bijlmermeer. Bijlmer was designed by the department of City Development according to the strict tenets of CIAM. Constructed throughout the 60's in striking resemblance to Le Corbusier's Radiant City plan, by the time the massive towers were constructed, high modernism was already under vitriolic scrutiny by the architectural community. Intended to alleviate Amsterdam's housing shortage, middle class never moved to the housing project in the wake of burgeoning suburbanization and a plummeting population in the center city. Bijlmer became the dumping ground for unwanted immigrant communities and the city's excessive drug problems. Only until recently, has the massive housing project been redeveloped into more mixed income housing with a diversity of uses and styles. Many of the block slabs have been leveled due to poor construction and maintenance but the remaining towers have been renovated into exceptional apartments. This piece was created on one of the last remaining vacant houses.

Thomas Daniel Smith (11 May 1915 – 27 July 1993) was a British politician who was Leader of Newcastle upon Tyne City Council from 1960 to 1965. A visionary of his time, Smith wanted Newcastle to become "the Brasilia of theNorth" through the implementation of massive redevelopment projects and slum clearence programs. His legacy included the <a href="http://www.timmonet.co.uk/html/body_swan_house.htm" rel="nofollow">Swan House</a> in the center of the city which replaced the original Medieval streets with a large motorway and roundabout. Smith`s political career would eventually be destroyed by offering lucrative building contracts to local architects, the result of which were housing estates such as the infamous Cruddas Park project. Props to GMC crew for the wall and all of the help! Of course a big shout to Onethirty3 for flying me out and organizing the installation.

The quote reads "... Some of the slum areas through which the Franklin Expressway passes are a disgrace to the community, and the more of them that are wiped out the healthier Baltimore will be in the long run" 1944 www.uctc.net/papers/659.pdf
