-HONOURABLE MENTION of Waterless World Competition


Infrastructures of Dust speculates on a robotic ambulatory high-rise designed to revitalize the dry lakebed of Owens Lake and reinstate economic and environmental resilience to the area through the process of dust collection and cloud seeding. Basing its scope on the outline of Owens Lake, this project proposes the replicable model of an alternate approach to ecology and infrastructure. One that, through blending organic and mechanical functionality, can opportunistically tackle the growing global issues of increasing water scarcity and dust pollution.
