Updated 26Feb2014: Christopher Janus, a young American landscape architecture student has to complete his last class before graduation, a self directed design study in Morocco. Other students had already studied water as a design element in Morocco–he was going to study it as a public social phenomenon. He was ready, he was determined; but unbeknownst to him, he did not have a sufficiently strong grasp of the North African landscape. The history, the geography, the culture and day to day life ripped at him, chased him, choked him. He strained to keep contact with his own cultural steadiness. In the end, to satisfy his graduation requirement, his design study of water softened into an unusual artifact collection of spritely short stories entitled, Hibiscus House.
