Forgotten Infrastructures

Forgotten Infrastructures counters the idea of a virgin landscape to reassign value in the land surrounding Soul Fire Farm as an infrastructure of care and habitation, de-centering the human to create a form of land stewardship. Soul Fire Farm is a 72 acre, BIPOC community farm that shares skills in sustainable agriculture, natural building construction, spiritual activism, and health and environmental justice. The farm was looking to expand their campus with a lodge and program center to expand their ability to teach their ways of working with the earth. I propose a new farming and building infrastructure that allows them to connect further with the landscape while providing habitat for natural plants and wildlife.
