Spring 2023 GGR Recipient
Charlotte Pitts (Architecture)
This funding will support my Masters of Architecture graduate thesis project, which will examine the possible spatial and conceptual future for post-mining landscapes in the intermountain American West. In particular, I will advance a multi-disciplinary, multi-scalar, and systems-based approach to understand hardrock mining sites like the Gold King Mine in Silverton, Colorado. Through on-site documentation of the landscape and the community, I will be able to produce a unique account of the environment that will deeply inform the development and execution of the project throughout the coming year.
