LA 7061 Site Systems Studio (Fall 2014)
This advanced graduate design studio aims to establish a site plan for the newly appointed World Heritage Site, Poverty Point Louisiana, in the Mississippi River Corridor. The studio considered impacts of intervention on this historic site as a source of design expression and ethical preservation, where design proposals become part of a sound argument for the sites ecological and cultural resources. The design for the landscape itself should be distinct, with defining experiential qualities. Designed intentions should be read as artifact.
