Nash Waters is in his final semester of the graduate architecture program at Washington University in St. Louis. He will receive his Masters in Architecture degree this upcoming Spring 2014. His final degree project explores urban relationships between post industrial sites, landscape ecologies, and architecture through the development of a plant science center for the urban environment in downtown St. Louis. The project also begins to confront contemporary issues of big agriculture business, especially those relating to the local St. Louis giant, Monsanto.
Nash continues to investigate architecture at all scales. His competition winning entry, Fern-iture, is in the final design phases and will be constructed this spring. He has also received a grant from Washington University's Student Sustainability Fund to build additional pieces of Fern-iture for the Wash U campus.
