Uptown Bluff: Urban Homesteading 3.0

Hillary Pritchett (2014)

An ecotone is the meeting place of two biomes, or communities. It is a place in its own right—a transition place—at times harboring species not present in the converging communities that define it. Some species depend on ecotonal areas for nesting, courtship, or sustenance.

The place where two communities meet can take on any one of myriad forms. What if a mixed-use housing project used the ecotone concept to integrate human and non-human habitat by way of food production? Much like an ecotone, Uptown Bluff incorporates a gradient of intersecting indoor, outdoor, and “in-between” spaces to achieve habitat, cultivation, and community.
