LOST in PASTure

Lost in Pasture

Located in the flood-plain of the Missouri River Basin, lies an uncovered inland shipwreck – the final resting place for its crew and undisclosed cargo and passengers. The project seeks to develop a remote and protective shelter for the significant archaeological site, which will likely be deemed a national memorial. Early researches include hydrological studies and mappings of the Missouri River evolution near the site over time. The design is inspired by the meandering bends of the Missouri River, while considering the relationship of the vast expanse of the skyline, the varying ground conditions and the structure itself. The flexible shelter-strategy will be able to evolve to accommodate varying uses and respond to changing climatic and hydrologic conditions.
