The M-Rad studio proposes to accomplish a variety of exciting and innovative things in its Fresh Hills project. The plan involves bringing new life, purpose and appreciation to the location of an old landfill on Staten Island in New York state by introducing eco-friendly industry and by welcoming the public.

The architecture of the proposal is enthralling in its organic incorporation of sustainably sourced bamboo for its sweeping nest-like structures. These long and curving masses work to guide gusts of air across the grassy site towards the wind turbines within.

Matthew Rosenberg, Robbie Eleazer and Emmy Maruta have also given Fresh Hills the ability to filter carbon dioxide in addition to harnessing energy cleanly. To top it off, the site would function as an expansive park to overturn the typically isolated nature of wind farms.
