DEVANG ARVIND SHAH
select utopias

Oasis is an exploration of utopian idealism, joy, and self determination - a combination of warm water pool & greenhouse filled with medicinal plants. The roof opens directly to the sky. 

Visitors can pluck their own Native, African, and Indian medicine, learn about their use, swim, relax, and listen to their own playlists pumping through the water.

Simultaneous pressures of war, climate change, racism, threats to our reproductive autonomy, a broken healthcare system, and disillusionment with religious institutions surround us.  

The need for joyful, spiritual and healing spaces is critical. We wish to respond with the utopian generosity of an oasis.
