Cannabis Space

Ongoing Research

 

A contemporary architecture of cannabis is yet to be defined. In the age of the “Green Rush,” we are seeing profound issues at play with respect to culture, policy, social justice, economic opportunities, and the environment. Dameron Architecture is exploring the space of cannabis through architecture and design. How can industrial, retail, and recreational spaces of cannabis safely connect people to plants and the natural world?
