(EXTRACTOPIA) And then what?: New world-making strategies
Linda Schilling Cuellar ‘18 MSAUD with Claudio Astudillo

The GSAPP Incubator Prize seeks to expand the territory between academia and the profession and promotes new models of practice by supporting alumni in the development of a wide range of new ideas and projects about architecture, contemporary culture, and the future of the city.

EXTRACTOPIA is research that looks into the extraction machine of the "Los Pelambres" copper mine in the Región of Coquimbo, Chile. With landscape transformations of unprecedented scale, we look at the four environmental liabilities sites and unpack the infrastructures that enable them.
