Slow Ride

The underside of the Coconut Grove Metrorail station was temporarily transformed by means of a multi-sensory installation. A field of one thousand, orange, coconut-scented, car, air-fresheners were placed on thin posts to create a micro-scaled artificial landscape. This public act de-contextualizes an ordinary everyday object associated with car culture and transforms it into an extraordinary urban experience, encouraging the passerby to consider the Slow-Ride associated with walking or biking through the city. The project was installed on March 30, 2016 as part of the University of Miami School of Architecture USERVE day to bring awareness to the Underline project, a new linear park and bike trail for the City of Miami.
