The moniker of the ‘Scenic City’ is derived from the geology and ecology of Chattanooga’s surrounding landscape of ridges, valleys, and mountains. As antidote to the projected homogenizing influence of a global economy channeled via the gigabit network – the regionally unique scenery or ecology of Chattanooga can serve as both identity and infrastructure.  Responding  to projections of urban densification facilitated by the ‘Gig City’, a network of pedestrian passageways breaks the nature-city binary extending the ‘Scenic City’ from the surrounding ridges, mountains and river valleys to the heart of the city, grounding city inhabitants in their primordial place.
