Berenika Boberska | Fallow City Project
February 26 - March 26, 2010


Fallow City Project is an intervention in the typical fabric of suburbia, in the monoculture of private spaces and cultivated dreams.

Taking the current crisis of the suburbs as a chance, and the most extreme situation of Detroit as its site, the project aims to develop new scenarios and new typologies of structures for the emerging fallow cityscapes. The interventions propose more playful and public ways of using or mis-using the suburban forms.

Similar to intensive monoculture farming, suburbia is an overstretched production of property, creating a thinness of space, use, ideas. A fallow season which releases the city from this productivity creates an interruption where unusual uses and forms can flourish. The crisis of the suburbs has up till now been invisible, always un-dramatic and un-seductive as a design problem. Yet this is the most prolific of urban landscapes, massive in its effect and most in need of ideas. The Fallow City Project begun as a Design Laboratory at the University of Virginia—bringing together a team of students from the departments of art, architecture, landscape architecture, electrical engineering and chemistry. Ideas and structures were tested and played out through physical models, stop-motion animations and narratives. The proposals were assembled together to construct a Collective Model of a near future suburb of Detroit.
