A Line in the Landscape

The Line is a "micro-budget" structure designed by Sacramento design practice REgroup that was installed in rural California late last year. The 75-foot-long white surface marks a place in the landscape that can be used for weddings, performances, and other events.
The Line is located in Lockeford, a small community of a few-thousand residents about a one-hour drive from Sacramento. (Thankfully it is not one of the areas in California hit by wildfires this month.) REgroup partners Gary and Julia Lewis call the temporary structure "a new type of rural event space for the area." The "generic quality" of The Line — a long horizontal surface capped by a matching, human-scaled vertical surface at one end — aligns it with Land Art, as this short visual tour attests.
