3. Designing with Nature As “Archetypal Precedent”
City Choreographer

Chapter Three presents Halprin’s reliance on the “archetypal precedent of natural processes” to reorient people to their environment and reduce the barriers between humans and the natural world. The pioneering open space sequence in Portland, Oregon is the primary case study in this chapter, as it represents one of the best examples of his choreographic approach. Seattle Freeway Park serves as a comparative study of a later attempt to fulfill similar ideals.
