The work in this document is dedicated to the City of Tucson and all the people who live, have lived, and will live within her range. Tucson is in the habit of visioning. In October 2009, over 100 master plans, comprehensive plans, projects and studies of downtown were compiled by Pop-Up Spaces and Design Co*op. The exhibit was titled ±92: Downtown Master Plans, 1932-2009, and became an expression of collective visioning in downtown Tucson.
092+1 is another vision of Tucson but not just another vision. 092+1 is unique in its form and function. It rides the edges of downtown and introduces new collaborations between communities, organizations and landscapes. 092+1 is a ring of actual and metaphorical green woven into a desert town of beautiful brown. That new strand in Tucson’s cityscape reconnects many years of divisions and subdivisions. 092+1 proposes small investments in landscape which provoke large yields of re-investment in downtown.
