Creative Adaptation

Creative Adaptation.

"Creative Adaptation": A still from the film, of "Full Circle," a faculty-led installation for play and community-building on Buffalo's West Side.

Unlike other industrial or more densely populated cities, Buffalo residents have exemplary access to parks and recreation areas. This includes both the historic system of green spaces and emergent spaces of play. On the hand, property vacancies degrade neighborhood quality and hinder community development; on the other, these spaces provide opportunities for appropriation and creative adaptation, such play for all ages.
