A friend sent this image of a 16th Century fresco that they have uncovered and restored at their house in Umbria, Italy. How lovely!

    Hi Ruth,
    How are you? I can’t find better contact info for you, so apologies for writing her.

    I’m a NY-based journalist writing a story for Ode magazine, published monthly out of Rotterdam and the States. My story looks at extreme architecture as a response to threatening water or desertification. I’d love to chat with you about some examples and, if possible, have you point me to some folks I should talk to.

    So far, I am focusing on Rachel Armstrong’s Venetian reef, Magnus Larsson’s sandwall and Seawater Greenhouses’ various projects. There are just examples, and I have complete freedom as far as different forms of “architecture” goes. Please give me an email or call to set something up. Thanks!
