The first Remote Studio occurred in West Texas as part of Lori Ryker's PhD research, funded by an AIA/AAF grant. The project is a Quail Watching Station built at a Historic Park outside of Ft. Davis. Built into the hillside, this structure allows birders to watch the quail at ground level, and also provides a trailside picnic area.
Materials: locally harvested stone, ocotilla, reclaimed corrugated steel, timbers and framing members.
Location: West Texas
