This project explores the dredge cycle. The dredge cycle occurs when anthropogenic forces interact with the hydrological and geological cycles. It is typified by accelerated erosion and manufactured uplift of soil, silt, sand, and sediment.
The project recognizes that landscapes are processes rather than conditions. We detail systems of erosion control, soil transformation, and the coupling of natural, economic, military, and civilian forces. We uncover the soft landscapes of dredge, suggesting that they demand recognition as legitimate subjects of design intervention.
