Confluent Ecologies: New Urban Ground

ARCH 402b: Architectural Design IV

Instructor: Lorcan O'Herlihy

This studio seeks to develop elastic strategies that take its formative clues from the confluence of field (ocean) and convergent (urban waterfront) conditions to investigate the relationship between architecture and ecology, urbanism and emerging technology. Located at the site of this confluence, the objective of this studio assignment is to identify the critical role of design as an agent in engaging and fostering interaction in relation to the behavioral, environmental and social connectivity of urban ecologies. They are no longer passive, utilitarian, and singular in nature; the waterfront becomes the setting for multiple conflicts.
