When Brad opened the door to take a look outside, it came off its hinges. Depressed, he sat down on the only perch available in the still empty house, the toilet. It fell through the floor.
In partnership with the Watershed Management Group and the Community Food Bank, students and staff from the UofA’s Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology (BARA) are seeking to better understand how Tucsonans use, and would like to use, the outdoor spaces at their homes and in their neighborhoods. We also seek to better understand Tucsonans' ideas and beliefs about southwestern landscapes and what types of landscapes should be supported in our community.
