    Students in the Department of Architecture’s Material Culture research seminar last semester, under the direction of Miguel Guitart, assistant professor of architecture, explored ground-related architecture, focusing on mass, material recirculation and the relationships between construction and the land on which it sits. The installation is scheduled to remain on-site for two years as part of a study of its decay and erosion over time. Photos: Douglas Levere
