This picture represents Minneapolis’ future. It shows a bike path and a road that almost seems to converge on each other. I think that in the future not only will alternative forms of transportation, like biking, become more common, but that the road will return to a shared space, not only for cars.
This picture represents Minneapolis’ present. It combines the built environment, represented by the metal and the bridge in the background and the natural greenscapes and plants, represented by the goldenrod in the picture, which has grown to overtake what was once industrial.
This picture represents Minneapolis’ past. It shows the Gold Medal flour sign, which represents the milling industry that drove Minneapolis’ initial growth as a city.
