Re:Generation 2024 – The Descendants Project

The Descendants Project proposes a landscape architecture intervention: a labyrinth, meditation ground, and site of public memory dedicated to liberation struggles and victories against slavery, colonialism, and industrial encroachment. Rooted in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana, it will be produced in collaboration with surrounding communities and in support of potential Landmark status by the National Park Service.

Team Members include: Jo Banner, Joy Banner and Mary Niall Mitchell.


The Descendants Project is a project of Monument Lab's Re:Generation, supported by the Mellon Foundation. For a full list of credits, see Re:Generation 2024.
