Excavating Wilderness: A reOrienting trajectory across Central Park

Throughout modern human history, the term wilderness has continually evolved to define the eternal relationship between man and nature. Such malleability over time thus concretizes this relationship in distinct moments, producing a collective historical lineage of natural and human history as well as fundamental societal principles and attitudes along the way. As the traditional wilderness declined and civilization grew, the values associated with such natural places were then transferred to pockets of nature within the rising city: the park. These societal repositories were created in the image of nature, and served to collect their surroundings in such as a way as to reorient their visitors through a series of didactic spaces.
