Pan-American Highway 2.0

Over 14,000 miles, the Pan-American Highway stretches across North, Central, and South America (Cycle Pan-America, 2012). This thesis explores the Andean portion of the Pan-American Highway as it is susceptible to geological hazards including landslides and sand storms, endangering the thousands of lives that utilize the highway daily. The design project utilizes a system of steel arches and nets that redirects the land sediments away from the road and allows for economic opportunities on previously un-occupiable sites. The mitigation system acts as an over-arching architecture that allows for programs such as rest stops, markets, and viewing platforms to emerge.
