Re-Wilding the City: Urban Landscapes as Integral City Infrastructure

A walking tour of Living Edge and 10,000 SUNS with Landscape Architect and Artist Adam Anderson

There are few more photographed landscapes in Providence than Adam Anderson’s 10,000 SUNS installation, which sets a field of riotous sunflowers against the dramatic city skyline. In 2019, Anderson expanded his landscape vision along the Providence River, with the creation of the nearby Living Edge pocket park that addresses ideas around climate change, community, resilience, and history. Join the mastermind behind these two iconic landscapes on this tour that highlights the ways in which these urban greenspaces enhance and are enhanced by the built environment.
