The "Bay Area Transect" project was designed to be a complex four-story landscape designed to minimize the impact on the environment and provide educational experiences for visitors. The project also meets the requirements of sustainability, with elements such as ventilation, green roof, solar power, and a balanced water conveyor.
Every year, the "Architecture at Zero" contest attracts students and professionals to attend with less energy-intensive options at a specific location. This year's challenge is to create an educational and excursion center for the Oceanographic Center at the University of San Francisco. All designs should include a master plan with two buildings in line with the mission of the ocean research program.
The "Bay Area Transect" design and process is a collaboration between Arrowstreet, the Copley Wolff Design Group and the HTM / Madrid Office. The team has worked together for more than two months to create an impressive project that will allow visitors to explore coastal ecosystems as well as sustainable technologies.
The design not only connects buildings but also harmonizes with the surrounding environment, the green roofs are doubled to become walkable spaces for visitors. The riverfront access road with functional areas at the top of the hillside has contributed to the reduction of vehicle traffic. In addition, open design will allow visitors to feel the function and purpose of the building. In addition, the project will incorporate a safe river mouth so that visitors can sail to explore the local coastal ecosystem.
After winning the award, the team of award-winning entertainers including Steve Zuber, Lee Robert, Cristina Desloges, and Kate Bubriski, have donated money to the Women's Lunch Place in Boston - a women's shelter. designed by Arrowstreet.
