Civilian Corps of Landscape Reassessment

The American West that most people know is one of fiction. From the photography of Ansel Adams to the spaghetti western movies, there are countless representations of what people want the American West to be. Through this speculative design framework, the Corps can subvert the official narratives that depict romanticized visions of a landscape. And instead, give individuals the opportunity to form their own relationship with the land and then contribute their experiences to a new narrative.  A narrative that acknowledges our past mistakes and holds the community responsible for a more compassionate future.
