GENE SUN SPRING2012 PROCESS PORTFOLIO

directives respond to the anticipated changes in sea level due to climatic change. conducted in collaboration with Graduate Landscape Architecture Program at University of Maryland. building program must seek to engage community involvement and raise awareness about the future of Maryland’s Eastern Shore and the communities that reside by the Chesapeake Bay. site: Vienna, Maryland.

GOAL

address the onset of sea level change that is anticipated from the Chesapeake Bay and effect on the built environment along the coast

encourage a harmonious relationship between people and nature, where people can appreciate a peaceful thriving living environment

DESIGN

stimulate the production of a riparian buffer to slow the movement of water inland, enrich the ecology of the shoreline for environmental health engage community to take part in construction process, both of the building and of the buffer

create spaces in which people can relax or engage in leisure or meditative activity. spaces will allow small gatherings and places for cleansing and reflecting, promoting human health

IMPACT

minimize environmental impact and carbon footprint on site. use native, supportive landscaping techniques to beautify shoreline and address sea level change

promote an active awareness of the landscape and natural surroundings by weaving people through interior and exterior building relationships along or across the shoreline

PROGRAM SPACES

GUIDING CONCEPTS

The town of Vienna, along with many waterfront communities that reside around the Chesapeake Bay, face the inevitable challenge of addressing sea level rise and its impending effects on residents who have made their living in close proximity to the bay.

[site development]

[temporal sensitivity]

[sustainability]

+project goal: restore natural habitats and ecosystems along the shoreline +building acts as a catalyst for developing the environment +moving building components respond to the growth of vegetation initiated by community

+passage of time and forces of nature shape the building’s siting & design +memory is incorporated by the marking of the landscape where moving building components are grounded +ritual is established as a way to tie the community together and to the site

[relationship to environment]

[flexibility]

+modest physical presence on the wetlands +built on high ground for long term safety from sea level rise +minimal foot print using stilt construction reducing building impact +frames the landscape as focus of the site

+program spaces are not explicitly defined +activities in the building prone to change over time +building’s service to the community may evolve over time +moving building components conveys a readiness to move

+local, recyclable, and renewable materials to reflect character of the building and its goals for the community +ease of construction and simplicity of structure aim to ease the necessary replacement of worn building components +symbiotic relationship between community and natural environment +restoring and augmenting past, thriving natural ecosystems +open interpretation of building functions permits it to last for many generations, in whatever way it is most useful

The Green Build Interpretive Center seeks to accomplish two goals in conjunction with each other: slow the movement of water toward the town of Vienna and serve as a medium for activities that will unite the community in a common goal. The result is a building complex that encourages residents of Vienna to volunteer their time and effort to strengthening a living, riparian buffer which will absorb water and slow its movement inland, offering a memorable opportunity for the community to take the future into their own hands.
