    on the river, of the marsh

    I wanted to post a few pictures and a link to a project I'm working on for 'Professional Practice: Design Clinic'. The class is not part of studio but allows students to take on design tasks for real clients or assist in real world design projects.

    The class deserves a proper mention as I feel it is one of the more dynamic classes offered at the NewSchool in that it includes students in real world design and research projects led by local architects/firms.

    Projects this quarter include an Intermodal Transportation Center for San Diego Airport, a Green Bus terminal on the UCSD Campus and then of course there is my tiny little project which is a floatiing outbuilding for 2 artists living on a tidal waterway in Ruskin Fl.

    Short Brief on my project:

    Bruce and Delores Marsh are both artists and teachers and are looking to gain space at their home studio compound. Their site , being next to a waterway and bound by local regulations, has no more room for development so they would like to expand onto the waterway in the form of a barge/platform to gain a guest room and study.

    Design should be moveable so it will be classified as a vessel, and must also be towable by his small boat. The idea being that he could take and anchor in distant locations to serve as a base for fishing trips on the marshes.
