Scorched Earth

Pennsylvania State University

On the occasion of the ‘Oslo Architecture Triennale, 2019′, this study was published, which focuses on the expansion and subsequent decline of a mining area in the United States of America, called ‘Centralia’.

Specifically the mineral being mined was anthracite (a highly energetic form of ‘normal’ coal). The study, which includes topographical material, text and photographs from the period, details how mining was the main reason for the growth and, at the same time, subsequent decline of this area of the country.
