I have a fantasy that future cities will be in danger of encroaching nature. That we’re going to have a reverse Industrial Revolution wherein massive eco-recovery conglomerations buy up swaths of land in the middle of urban areas to “build” fields, meadows, forests and wetlands. The result will be these incongruous, yet oddly beautiful urban/rural hybrid cityscapes as pictured above. (Thanks to sets of paragraphs for introducing me to Agnes Denes and her ecological art project, Wheatfield—A Confrontation.)

*These photos also reminded me of this little apartment on the prairie.
