Abstract: 

"A Fable of Lost Volumes" is a spatial investigation of scale, history, and experience in a unique industrial mining landscape that is slated for closure in the year 2022. The project explores memory, time, and landscape in the design of a future library and museum in post-extraction Flin-Flon, Manitoba. The work focuses on a series of questions and themes, informed by ideas of the Anthropocene - namely how our landscapes are complex and interwoven with human and non-human relationships, economies, and ecologies - how we identify and construct meaningful associations with places and artifacts. This thesis uses a catalogue to comprehend the nature of artifacts and memory, allowing the production of a series of architectural moments to preserve the legacy of Flin Flon. The design project is an eco-tour of the Anthropocene that forms a dialogue between memory and the landscape, history and the human, deep time and lived experience.
