Hypothetical Developments

Check out this fun Kickstarter project by Rob Walker et al. that tells new, hypothetical stories about neglected buildings in New Orleans, called Hypothetical Development. Riffing on the concept of rendering signs, which often show developer’s glossy renditions of future projects for the site the sign is located on (but all too often depict more smoke-and-mirrors than actual plans), the signs show more imaginative possibilities for underused or abandoned sites. You can see more info at the project’s website.

As someone who has, in fact, worked on renderings that probably got used on the less imaginative versions of these signs, I’m happy to see others put their skills to more creative uses. You can help fund the project and get cool premiums on that Kickstarter site.
