The Crossroads

Choosing a site for the project, it was important to first identify a location that had been previously disturbed. The bluff overlooking the crossroads of Highways 50 and 177 was a former commercial feeding operation (CFO) that has sat abandoned for over thirty years. The project’s goal is to restore the site to prairie grass and to locate a visitor’s center and hotel rooms along the perimeter. With the restored landscape, the foreground grasses create the illusion that, while located in close proximity to a major proposed Amtrak train station, the site is located in the middle of the Flint Hills. By relating to the vernacular practice of an economy of means, the site drop-off and erection, and specific choice of materials, are conceived with a low-budget and tight construction schedule in mind.
