Title: The Wallis Ballpark Project: Complex pastoralism in rural Texas
Author: Carroll, Alexander Campbell
Advisor: Wamble, Mark
Degree: Master of Architecture thesis
Abstract: Our relationship with the land is defined in the myth of American pastoralism. The founding and development of rural communities and towns throughout America has been strongly affected by the pastoral ideal. Complex pastoralism as defined by Leo Marx highlights the conflict between progress and this pastoral myth. This thesis is a proposal for the situating of a little league baseball/softball field along the commercial strip of a rural town in Texas. Using the exploration of complex pastoralism in this context, I am developing a strategy for the "architect" to operate in the context of rural America.
