Space Saloon: Landing

Space Saloon invited a group of international architects, artists, and engineers to work with university students in designing and building exploratory projects and installations that were ground-zero for revealing, harnessing, and amplifying the elemental potentials of site. Projects ranged from large constructed base stations for observing the surrounding landscape, to artist-led installations focusing on aspects of geology, wind, and water. Additional lectures, tutorials, and performative field-recordings dealt with ephemeral aspects of place, such as sound, energy, and atmosphere. 
Through a series of curated workshops held in the high desert of Morongo Valley, California, students from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and the International Program in Design and Architecture at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok (INDA) were trained in a combination of analog and digital surveying methods, environmental sensing technologies, hands-on building tools, and collaborative virtual design devices.
