Hi, this is the personal website for Michael T. Bacon, Ph.D. candidate in the Constructed Environment at the University of Virginia School of Architecture.

My dissertation focuses on the community land buyout movement in rural Scotland, and trying to sort out how community land ownership seems to reverse economic and demographic decline while simultaneously improving environmental conditions. Other work I’m currently doing involves investigating the intersection of science, technology, and society (STS) work and planning theory.

More here as time permits, as usual.
