Lake Sarita is a small wetland at the south end of the University of Minnesota's St. Paul Campus. Historically neglected, Most of the original Lake Sarita was filled in and "temporary" student housing was built following the G.I. Bill in the 1950s and 60s. The project presented to the MLA 1 students was to re-design the space to incorporate improved hydrological properties as well as social and economic improvements into the awkward and oft-neglected space.
