'Las Palmas Oasis'

This project investigates the possibility of a fully contextual architecture - one that exists in a given context and is the result of it. It explores the potential of 'context' as a generative parameter for the development of an inhabited and inhabitable region in the desert. The site of the California desert becomes a fertile landscape, one ready to be reaped for its ability to cultivate an 'oasis'.
