THESIS | (inter) Tidal Articulation

 

GSD Spring 2016

Advisor: Bradley Cantrell

Using the For Point Channel in Boston as an exemplary site, this thesis explores the possibility of diversifying  landscapes at the  water's edge. The project works telescopically at both the city-scale and  the detailed site scale. At the city scale, pedestrian corridors are created to the site within a one mile walking radius. At the site scale, dynamic spaces are created that take advantage of natural phenomena to create more engaging and varied experiences. From tidal art to noise articulation, from solar-heated pools Ultimately, the site comes alive with everything from sheltered seating to floating walkways, from solar heated pools to tide-driven water falls, from tide pools to reflecting pools.
