Albuquerque Median Prototypes 

Location: Albuquerque, NM

Completed: Ongoing since 2004

When initially conceived in 2004, the median prototypes project was aimed at quickly and efficiently landscaping Albuquerque’s bare and unfinished arterial streets.  The prototype concept is an MRWM developed innovation that has resulted in the landscaping of more than 70 miles of city medians in the last 9 years.  To  provide prototype choices applicable to the majority of Albuquerque’s streets, the project employs highly variable and adaptive modules that easily accommodate the widely varying lengths and widths of existing medians.  The unit of design is a 60’-0” or 200’-0” “pod.” These adaptable “pods” allow a large number of median prototypes to be quickly built by the City’s on-call landscape contractors.
