Above the Pavement — The Farm!


WORK Architecture Company is pleased to announce that their new book Above the Pavement — The Farm! has been published by Princeton Architectural Press. WORKac was founded in 2003 by Amale Andraos (B.Arch. 1996) and Dan Wood.

Forty years after French protestors took to the streets with the rallying cry "Sous les pavés, la plage!" (Beneath the pavement, the beach!), a new form of radical expression took shape at MoMA's P.S.1 courtyard in Queens. Above the Pavement — The Farm! reveals the groundbreaking efforts of WORKac and their team of more than 150 collaborators—farmers, politicians, soil scientists, engineers, students, and artists—to create a new type of sustainable urban infrastructure. With contributions by artist and agricultural activist Fritz Haeg, architectural historian Meredith TenHoor, architect Winy Maas, and head chef Michael Anthony of the Gramercy Tavern.

In celebration, there will be a panel discussion at the Horticultural Society on Wednesday, June 23, 2010.
