LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

ALBANY BULB

Until 1983, the 190 acre site east of San Francisco. known as the Albany Bulb was a landfill for construction waste. The bulb has since acquired a fully grown landscape, a healthy artist community that reuses the wide assortment of found material, and a handful of advanced windsurfers who all enjoy the panoramic views of the bay. These drawings are designed to encourage waterfront access for the citizens of Albany. 

My designs explore vegetation density and how this can shape circulation on site. The waters edge was originally comprised of dunes and grazing areas, but began to serve more industrial purposes in the the 20th century. I aim to promote ecological observation and the pursuit of relaxation outdoors in a space with a very broad environmental history.
