STUDENT PROJECT | Rethinking the Rez | Jeff M. Jones

pottery_navajo

This is a conceptual graduate student project that was undertaken as part of a studio led by Laurie Olin at the University of Pennsylvania in the spring semester of 2014. It focused on revitalizing Crownpoint, New Mexico, USA, a small town on the Navajo Reservation, in one of the poorest counties in the United States. The design creates a new cultural route to promote Navajo heritage and to provide a new source of income for the community. A swale along the route collects storm water and uses it to irrigate community gardens at the center of the city. Both the route and the swale work with the existing topography to minimize the cost of regrading, since their budget is limited.
