Abandoned Mines/ Beyond Gimmicks & Eye Washes/ Donovan Gracias


The lack of Mine closure strategies is one of the primary issues that are pushing Goa to an environmental and economic collapse. The mining industry in Goa has also had the ‘foresight’ to ensure that its devastating impact will be felt here forever. Massive craters are left abandoned to a miserable existence, which continue to impact its surroundings. The thesis proposal by Architect Donovan Gracias – “Project Earth: A Memorial to the Devastation of the Earth” hopes to explore the possibilities of rehabilitating such an abandoned mine beyond gimmicks and eyewashes.
