  • Climate change does not respect border; it does not respect who you are -

    rich and poor, small and big. Therefore, this is what we call 'global

    challenges', which require global solidarity.

    - Ban Ki-Moon

  • Puget Point

    Global Warming and climate

    change have been a pressing

    issue for many, and e8ects

    all. It has been identi;ed

    as a problem that will take

    a substantial amount of time

    to recover from and has a

    direct correlation with the

    amount of participants.

    In the immediate future, the

    necessity for the education

    of youth and the general

    public will become more

    vital. Empowered by

    knowledge gained, more

    people will begin to

    comprehend the daunting task

    at hand. This will cause the

    number of participants to

    rise and will expedite the

    process of positive change.

    Seattle, Washington

    Puget Point is an immediate

    response to the process of

    educating the public. It is

    a Research Facility with the

    main goal of enriching the

    lives of the general public

    through R&D. It serves other

    functions as well; creating

    habitats for the dwindling

    salmon population of Puget

    Sound, initializing swell

    breaks, and altering its

    original function to become

    a safe haven in times of

    crisis.

  • The current sea +oor at Puget Sound is primarily

    man-made, much like the arti9cial island Olympia

    permanentely docked at the mouth of Puget Sound. Once

    a thriving salmon zone, the sea creatures were slowly

    pushed out due to increased boat traAic and the major

    terra-forming that took place at the sea bed which

    +attened out the sea +oor; thus, destroying the

    natural habitat that once protected salmon from

    predators.

    At the head of the Duwamish Waterway (located East of

    the primary site). There is high potential for swells

    and surges if the water level were to rise signifcant-

    ly, leading to the loss of primarily residential land.

    The proposal is for extended terra-formation that

    would provide an extension of the beach out into the

    waters. The new land formation would be supported by a

    series of stilts that would recreate a habitable

    zone for local sea creatures.

  • 1. The &oor-plate of the ocean

    above the Duwamish Waterway is

    man-made and therefore &at.

    This causes fast underwater

    currents and a lack of habit-

    able places for local wildlife

    to breed and rest.

    3. The newly developed beach

    acts as a bu>er for the shore-

    line in times of storm surges.

    This allows rushing sea water

    to gradually make its way up a

    controlled slope.

    5. The strips are then

    stretched and compressed hori-

    zontally to maximize land to

    water ratio, maximizing bu>er-

    ing ability.

    2. Pillars are raised to dis-

    rupt disturbing under-currents

    which aids in repolulation of

    local wildlife through creation

    of habitable areas. It also

    begins to frame the structure

    of the beach extension.

    4. To increase the e>ective-

    ness of the beach, the land is

    parcelled into strips that

    would undulate vertically and

    control the direction of the

    rising sea water.

    6. Puget Point acts as an

    extension of the beach bu>er,

    acting as research center,

    storm surge bu>er, as well as a

    habitable environment for wild-

    life.

    FOCUS ON THREE CORE ASPECTS

    The program of Puget Point revolves around three fundamental

    principles: Prevention, Education, and Protection. It is designed to

    encompass the past, present, and future welfare of the general

    public.

  • A+C design school

    As designers, the process of

    creating, improving,

    discovering, and

    experiencing is often taken

    for granted. The art world

    as we know it, is select and

    exclusive. Few are fortunate

    enough to be inspired and

    even fewer are inspirations.

    Downtown Los Angeles is

    experiencing a gentri>cation

    that could be an opportunity

    to experience both.

    A+C Design School is

    intended to have a multitude

    of programs that are

    centered around the Arts.

    From Childrens Arts and

    Crafts to the highest level

    of Culinary Training. In the

    spirit of acceptance, the

    Doors nearest to the public

    pedestrian walkway are

    purposely left exposed.

    Inviting and bright.

    Los Angeles, California

    The structure of the build-

    ing is intended to be both

    functional and experiential.

    Constantly casting dynamic

    shadows and allowing

    pedestrians to physically

    interact with the buildings

    bones.

    A+C strays from its

    surrounding buildings.

    Escaping the monotonous

    elegance of downtown

    buildings while nodding to

    the Bradbury Building across

    the street with an open

    central atrium that borrows

    its illumination from the

    sun.

    The program is a gradient of

    densities from sparce on the

    lower Doors to dense towards

    the top due to the programs

    need for privacy at the

    uppermost Door.
