Architectural designer and adventure cyclist Kris Moreau takes us on a 2,376 mile bike trip down the Big Muddy from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Giant lumberjacks, grain silo houses, and floating geodesic domes speckle the banks of North America's most legendary river-- a culture highway that deserves to be on the radar of architects and makers everywhere.
