building topography

April 4, 2012

From Tami

I stopped in at the A+D Museum to check out the Drylands Design exhibit an initiative of the Arid Lands Institute (ALI).  Designers from all disciplines were responding to the challenges of water scarcity in the face of climate change, focusing specifically on the US West.  Pictured here, a beautiful model representing the topography of a watershed.  Plastic straws ‘planted’ in an aluminum base woven through with various colored plastic film.   If you’re in LA go see these brilliant design solutions to a major problem. The exhibition is beautifully designed by Annie Chu and April Greiman.
