Thesis Title:

Terra Dispositions

Alec Rovensky Architecture Thesis

This thesis aims to expose the ecological transformations of territories laced with human agency by examining the residues left by water in order to deviate from the misplaced nostalgia of a return to nature in favor of a critical awareness. Clay, a residue historically significant for its elasticity and widespread availability, becomes a registration of these transformations. Through the integration of traditional slip-casting and contemporary digital fabrication methods, the thesis attempts to reveal these changes through the form-making of a temporal ecological monument.
