Topic: Innovating Riparian Restoration with Clay Structures
Paul Ross will discuss his UNM Master’s project in landscape architecture, which investigated the potential of using unrefined clay to construct in-stream erosion control structures. The project rose from an interest in structures designed to respond to their environments over time, instigating a process of human engagement rather than a finished and static object. The project draws from the work of Bill Zeedyk and Ronald Rael, and will hopefully continue to evolve in the future.
