I’m happy to announce that my work is appearing in Fairy Tales Vol. 3, the published result of the latest in a series of competitions for architectural fictions.

My entry, “A Case of Pareidolia,” plays on the rivalry between Auburn University and the University of Alabama, as conducted on football fields and, in a 2001 incident, through the poisoning of Auburn’s landmark oaks by a Crimson Tide fan. The main character, a landscape architect experiencing severe paranoia, attempts to make sense of the rivalry through the patterns he sees in the landscapes of the two schools, making a series of maps, diagrams, and montages to try to argue his vision to the public.

It’s an honor to be included, and to be able to join in some way the conversation around design fictions, on which more shortly.
