The modern plan has become fibrous. Utility. Information, Power, Water. The modern point is multi-lateral; both continuos and shattered simultaneously. A meshwork of redundant centers. A frame of intersecting cells. The hydrant, the sprinkler, the standard, the post, the box, the bench. These are all humanitarian. They are the human scale. sheltering our most vulnerable and reserved for action, this dormant infrastructure is the lifeline. Linear conduit or overlapping circles. These shared center offer multiple functions.
Folding in the expandable; extendable reach of the catchment, each acts as a processor of fluid resource. The HyperLocal Neighborhood Standard. A place to meet. A place to produce. A place for time.
