STEP 6:

Now it's time to make the rest of the “landscape architecture,” which is really all up to you. It's a good idea to start by dividing each takeout box into one distinct zone and then populate it with plants, benches, people etc. Here's how we divvied ours up: Box 1: Gansevoort stair, beginning of railroad tracks Box 2: Beginning of woodlands Box 3: The thick of the woodlands Box 4: The sundeck and sunning chairs Box 5: Water feature and 10th Ave. Plaza

MATERIALS:

- 5 plastic sushi takeout containers - 12 pairs of wooden chopsticks - black paint - black paper - a fork - foil - glue - a knife - A spatula or spoon - FOOD! You can get pretty creative here and substitute whatever you like but here is what we used:

- mashed potatoes - chinese chives - yams or carrots - stuffing - cranberry paste or quince paste - baby corn - purple corn or whatever corn you have at your local greenmarket - pickled red peppers - soymeat (in an effort to make this recipe vegetarian) - broccoli - dried rosemary - agar agar + blue food coloring (for the water feature) - mexican corncakes or cornbread - enoki mushrooms (for the “people”) - wasabi flavored sesame seeds - black sesame seeds
