We recently received a heads up from architecture grad Brandon Mosely regarding his thesis project; he coincidentally used Pitcher, Oklahoma, as the site for his intervention. His proposal for a museum of abandoned mines, opportunistically capitalizes on the above and below ground post-industrial features of the site and is the kind of project we’ve been advocating. Thanks for sharing Brandon, it’s great to see other people choosing design over standard reclamation practice at abandoned mines. For more on the project and Tar Creek, you can also check the Mine Plug post on BLDGBLOG.
