PLANS is a series of images that captures and archives the sites of development in the city of Santa Cruz that are pending, approved, or in-construction in 2018.

 

As the expansion of Silicon Valley reaches the shores of Santa Cruz, the city is rapidly changing. PLANS aims to visualize the sites of change and loss and to create space for discussions about the types of communities we want to live in.
