What a place to leave a rock! The third of three: stay sweet, wild and hopeful. Thank you to the beautiful stranger who left a heart on the top of what was once a landfill. #kindnessrocks#adrocksrq#landart
Working on Suburban Renewal
This piece is an exploration into human intervention within already defaced - yet starkly beautiful - natural landscapes. Broadly, this work serves to ask what we mean when we decide to “beautify”, “upgrade”, or “renew” a space, and how we can better respect our habitats by reducing our consumption (and thereby our waste). By fusing contemporary & common building materials with a slowly degrading previous construction, “Suburban Renewal” challenges the notion that humans must continue to interfere with places that may be better off untouched & undisturbed.
Mine is a project of social and cultural integration, a resilient reality, between the folds of the mining landscapes and the silvery rocks. Born from the sense of belonging to a harsh land, from the vision of two young architects, Andrea and Paola.
