Since January, 2016 the Public Lab River Rat Pack (led by Architect and Assistant Professor Derek Hoeferlin) has documented multiple river edge conditions in the St. Louis, Missouri region, near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Some map the difference between high and low river stages; others map the intensity of industrial uses along the rivers; others map more ecological areas; and, all question the profound lack of access by the public to the rivers. Hoeferlin led a seminar at Washington University in St. Louis that included undergraduate and graduate architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, construction management and earth and planetary studies students. The work is ongoing, and we are looking forward to collaborate with others in St. Louis, and beyond. The exhibition of the work will be on display in Givens Hall at Washington University though mid-May. More posts are forthcoming from the students including more in depth explanations of findings from each site and the process of collaboration with the community. Thanks to Public lab, Washington University, the US Army Corps of Engineers, Audubon Institute at Riverlands, and others, for the time and support!

Oh my gosh, the exhibition looks so amazing! The balloon in a blue sky image is especially great. Thanks for posting!


Hi @derekhoeferlin! This is a great post. I'm a science writer based out of New Orleans and I'm working on a story about Public Lab. Would you mind if used some of these photos (with credit, of course!) in my article? Feel free to email me directly at AnyaGroner@gmail.com.

Is this a question? Click here to post it to the Questions page.


Hi @anyagroner thanks for reaching out to me. I just sent you an email. -Derek


Great exhibition from the happy kid on the photos I think it's been very interesting for audience of all age. Public lab, Washington University, the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Audubon Institute at Riverlands deserve to be rewarded for their help without which this exhibition would not happen.
