The Sublime Void

I began by looking at prairie art and literature to distill what is so compelling about this landscape. Walt Whitman noted that, while this landscape is not as dramatic or picturesque as the landscapes of the West, it is more compelling to be in, to travel through and experience. He called this “the sublime void.” My project seeks to maintain the sublime experience of an empty, boundless, horizontal landscape by blending it into the topography: a humble building that respects the naked prairie, the void, in which it sits.
