Jack Rusk: This project takes the plan of a previous project and collages it to generate sectional relationships. This intentional misreading of plan organization produced both a massing strategy—stacked and slipping volumes—and the organizational idea of a continuous condition flowing around discrete interrupting volumes. The program was a spiritual space to accommodate migrants seeking sanctuary. Embedded in an arroyo in the Sonoran desert, the structure can provide respite from the scorching desert sun while collecting water during the desert’s abundant, albeit fleeting, monsoon season. This water is stored and filtered in cisterns below, making it available year-round. This infrastructural capacity defines the overall flow of the building, from which discrete spaces are reclaimed for domesticity, care, and spirituality.
