RESILIENCE

Projects in this section tackle issues of sustainability and development in challenging, unpredictable environments. Here, students are working to address issues of water scarcity, extreme weather, soil depletion and habitat degradation through low-cost landscape-focused strategies on a project site in Szinda, Zimbabwe.

Gathering Terrain takes a human-centered approach to resilience, foregrounding ecological education and emotional connection to landscape. Capacity to Conserve utilizes resource- conscious building techniques to create robust, ecologically performative spaces. rejuve|NATION employs innovative low-impact agricultural practices to help create a self-sustaining research campus. Interconnection | Independence pulls from Zimbabwean architectural vernacular to create a culturally resonate site design focused on water conservation and reuse.
