Washburn Wire Company in Rumford East Providence, RI was once a famous factory that produced steel and wire. Today the site is empty with polluted soil. How can we design to make the landscape able to remediate the soil, but also recall the people’s memory of the great industrial? Bringing the economy with ecology value is a great question to think about.
