The Machine in the Garden or the Garden in the Machine

BY AVIGAIL SACHS
@ VOL 28 ON AUG 16, 2018

Avigail Sachs has been fascinated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) dams for several years and has visited every dam at least once. She is currently writing a history of the architects and landscape architects who were part of this Authority. This presentation includes some of her efforts as a photographer and as an historian, highlighting one theme in particular: the ways in which the TVA system is a “machine in a garden”, but also a “garden in a machine."
