SALTON SEA: SPECULATIVE FUTURES IN THE ARID WEST
Article in _SCAPE-MN, ASLA-MN’s publication, about the Salton Sea’s history and future, and studio process in 2019, and primarily featured student work. The range of projects looked at soil structure and landscape change, new forms of urbanism inspired by desert ecology, creating local water resources that organized public space. The studio encouraged students to think speculatively about the form and function of our landscape, particularly at the intersection of water and urbanism. All projects work at multiple scales, from the regional down to the detail or material.
