ARCH 201 Fall 2009 Schwartz & L’Italien
THINK BIG: The Bay Bridge Studio
The Fall 2009 Esherick studio, taught by Frederic Schwartz and Marc L’Italien, asked students to design the container for a linear neighborhood on the eastern segment of the Bay Bridge, a site that is walk able, easy to bicycle and ideal for public transportation. They were advised to think out of the box, think repetition, think integration, think infrastructure, think strategic vision, think transportation, think public space, think sustainable. How can we integrate and utilize this particular exposed location for sun, wind and water power.
