A powerful opportunity exists in recognizing environmental science (among the designed and engineered infrastructure of contemporary urban milieu) as open air, living, ekistics museums, or as ecomuseum. However, this agenda appears to be rare, if existent at all in the western United States. By articulating and advancing this as a shared interest between architectural theory, historiography and pedagogy, ubiquitous museography and inclusive museology, we (humanity) may go on collaboratively to optimistically affect a substantial cultural transformation toward informed hope, empathy and ecologically sustainable actions. With a transdisciplinary methodology, I approach the question: What is an urban ecology ecomuseum? Two theoretical references I suggest, which may inform curatorial processes, are the current works of professors Martin Kemp and Michael E. Zimmerman.
