Yesterday we had options architecture and urbanism research topic presented by an array of MIT faculty and visiting practitioners. I had conceived a project specific to my thesis while back in the good old bay. I was referring to it as Ballast Media, a remediation of aquamarine buoyant trades at the Hunters Point Shipyard. Yesterday, the 5th presentation and second concerning San Francisco, Miho Mezereeuw who is working on the forthcoming book, Preemptive Design: Disaster and Urban Development along the Pacific Ring of Fire presented the Hunters Point Shipyard as the focus of a joint urbanism, architecture, and building technology studio with 10 positions. It sounds like things will be quite in depth and the yearlong thesis now has the front end of 10 brilliant minds. I look forward to our studio trip this spring. Home is where the heart is.
Following is my set up consisting of 5 images and 2 questions.
BALLAST MEDIA_A case theory of in estruarian habitat and mercantile revitalization.
What is buoyancy?
Aren't we all just pirates?
