Oceans of Opportunity

Urbania | Beneath City Streets

From time to time, our work has taken us to and within the deep and dark voids that lie beneath city streets. There, worlds created by people have been lost, but very much exist and require human intervention to explore, examine, and sometimes repair.

In many cases, these bowels of our cities and industrial centers are part of human vitality, bringing us critical utilities and resources, and taking away our waste.

Other times, abandoned space and infrastructure presents unique problems for urban planning and development – and unique opportunities at the very same time.

Ocean Opportunity Inc. has a unique interest in urban exploration, particularly as many of the necessary technologies and techniques to intervene within these spaces are the very platforms that will take us to new ocean depths, and other worlds that we have yet to discover.

beneath city streets

I found it rather fitting today to find myself fielding emails about celebrating Earth Day using an iPhone and while doing ‘fieldwork’ in the heart of the city of Boston. I was forced to find some appreciation of the gray and brown, rather than green, and came to realize that

sunday; snowy sunday…

Talk about the woes of winter – this one can’t come to an end soon enough. With seemingly every weekend being buried with snow, there hasn’t been much time freed up to stay on top of proficiency dives and new experimental techniques which had been the weekend norm for about
