LA 480: Constructed Ecology

This study looks at the progression of water and soil through time. Naturally occurring wetlands form complex hydrologic relationships between water and soil. Through the lens of time, we can begin to understand the change in soil composition and structure as a result of constant saturation. Hydric soils form gradually, so it is difficult as humans to watch the progression of this phenomenon. This study attempts to speed up the process and incorporate human scale elements to bring us closer to the natural cleansing and filtering system of constructed wetlands. A progression through the hydrologic landscape  brings the viewer from a point of complete immersion, interacting and harmonizing within the ecosystem.
