After the Dam focuses on the landscape implications of dam removal and rewilding in the American West, and proposes that unbuilding and ruination can be as architecturally significant as building.
Using the Hells Canyon Dam on the Snake River as a speculative case study, the project looks to a time five or six decades from now, when the dam has reached the end of its working life and is a candidate for decommissioning. I suggest that as an alternative to complete removal, the dam might instead be breached and left as a monumental ruin within an expanded Hells Canyon National Recreation Area.
