Baltimore Urban Forest Banner

Baltimore Urban Forest Project 2008

With growing concerns and environmental calls for action, the green roof has become a top topic as a potential and desirable vehicle for change. With the urban landscape of Baltimore made up of downtown, and surrounding neighborhoods, each has the potential to clad row houses with green roofs to prevent rain run off into the Chesapeake Bay. Similarly large corporate institutions have also begun to look at the long term feasibility of capping their rooftops with cost effective green roofs.

Graphically, I wanted the tree canopy to be represented as a burst similar to familiar sun and solar motifs. The bland non–specific cityscape acts as the strong, stoic trunk and root systems. My approach to Urban Forest looks at the general characteristics of a cityscape–with green tops, the natural opposition to urban blacktop.
