[CON]CURRENT: Architecture as Measure

FIRST-PLACE PAUL KOSSMAN AWARD
AWARDED PENN STATE DISCOVERY GRANT

Globally, population growth has begun to push the bounds of our environment. As we attempt to grapple with this issue, we often turn to science and technology as a means for solving the problem. However, some problems cannot be solved technically. In the “Tragedy of the Commons,” Garrett Hardin recognizes these types of phenomena as “non-technical,” or those which cannot be resolved through science or technology. Non-technical solutions require a collective mind-set change. Population growth and global warming are two such issues. 
This thesis uses Hook of Holland in the Netherlands as a case study for how architecture can reveal non-technical solutions for site issues. By engaging the highly temporal boundaries of the dunescape, the transience of the landscape is highlighted and distinguished from that of the local town.
