WATER INFRASTRUCTURE TAXONOMY
Research work with the AridLands institute based in Los Angeles to develop a taxonomy to categorize land-based and low tech infrastructures, many of which have historic and indigenous roots, and temporary or ephemeral infrastructures. This work tests theories about organization, ways these strategies are deployed, and speculates on potential interventions or modifications. Through understanding design interventions in terms of form, function, materiality, and historical contexts, we can begin to propose new forms of infrastructure and landscape architecture that interpret, reorganize, or build upon known conventions.
