This month, the Architectural League and Urban Omnibus will open Capturing Change: Freshkills Park, an exhibition of photographs documenting the evolution of the world’s largest landfill-to-park project. Produced by photographers participating in tours led by Freshkills Park staff, the images depict the transformation of the site from a 2,200-acre landfill into a unique urban ecosystem of carefully engineered rolling hills.

The exhibition presents a selection of landscape and infrastructure photographs published by Urban Omnibus between 2014 and 2018, alongside new portraits depicting the people working to better understand the site. The park’s master plan, designed by Field Operations, accompanies the photos, revealing the design process guiding the site’s restoration.

The Capturing Change: Freshkills Park exhibition coincides with the upcoming publication of a new text on Urban Omnibus by Dani Alexander, winner of the Urban Wild Writer Residency.

Capturing Change: Freshkills Park features the work of Cameron Blaylock, Andrea Callard, Kathryn Carse, Jo Cavallo, Michael Falco, Charles Giraudet, Nadège Giraudet, Stephen Mallon, Michael McWeeney, Imara Moore, Sean Sweeney, Kipp Wettstein, and Dmitry Zbarsky.
