“Metabolic Movements: Recovering Riparia through Slow Flows” by Tawab Hlimi
Metabolic Movements: Recovering Riparia through Slow Flows by Tawab Hlimi is an idea about slow infrastructure that juxtaposes two layers of movement: that of complete streets optimized for pedestrian and bicycle safety, along with a layer of stormwater flows that considers daylighting the Confederation Creek. Linked through the common flows of people and water, road and riparian corridors are visualized as a hybrid metabolic network, integrating geographic notions of ‘place’ with infrastructural imperative of ‘performance’.
