Process and Progress: Drew Manahan, Meta Local Collaborative & The Bronx River Alliance showcases the past, the present and the future of commnuity and government efforts to restore the Bronx River. According to BRAC, "Architect Drew Manahan explores how the wilderness around the river has resurfaced within the South Bronx’s urban environment through renderings and drawings and how this evolving ecology and the river is creating new ephemeral or transcendental experiences for the borough’s inhabitants."
In addition, Meta Local Collaboratiive has partnered with the Bronx River Alliance to curate a selection of photos, plans, maps, documents from our archives, dating back to the early days of Bronx River Restoration in the 1970s. "These images trace how spaces along the river have changed throughout the years, revisit past restoration and recreation plans, and consider the river’s present state and plans for its future," according to BRAC. "Meta Local is showcasing work they are developing which focuses on public access to the Bronx River Greenway."
