SYNTHESIZING the SEGMENTED WORM (LUMBRICUS terrestris) I SETAE These are bristled spine-like appendages that occur in rows along the length of the worm’s body, enable the worm to grip the soil as it burrows.
II MUSCULATURE Circular muscles elongate the worm’s body when contracted.
Longitudinal muscles shorten and and compress the worm’s body when contracted.
setae setae setae
III HYDROSTATIC SKELETON Septa are the water-tight seals that separate each segment, allowing for more fine-tuned control of locomotion. Without discrete control of pressure in each compartment, the liquid would equilibrate and hydrostatic pressure would not exert proper force on the muscles to allow for normal movement

APPLICATION : RAINWATER CATCHMENT SYSTEM As weather patterns across the country continue to grow more erratic and extreme, the demands on municipal water supply and on sewer systems in high density urban areas will continue to grow. Consequentally, citizens of these regions will continue to feel the effects of these environmental stresses and resulting systemic insufficiencies. In an attempt to address these issues, we propose a rainwater catchment facade inspired by the principles of the earthwormâ€™s unique musculature and hydrostatic skeleton; a union of volumetric and linear expansion / contraction. Volumetrically, the facade consists of a series of flexible waterproof pockets. The pockets have closed edges except for openings along the top boundary of the system where it meets the building (allowing water to enter the system from outside), and at each pocketâ€™s corners whereby they are joined to one another; allowing water to pass from pocket to pocket within the system. On the macro-level, this freedom of water flow also allows for variable distribution of water within the system. CONCEPT AND FABRICATION IX Team X Team XI Kristen Schlott + Whitney Knuf RENDERINGS Kevin Murray
At rest, the pockets, and thus the whole system, are devoid of water and at volumetric “zero”. During a rain event, water is funneled from the roof of the building into the top of the system, through the building’s gutter system. As water enters the top of the system, gravity accelerates it downwards to the bottom boundary of the system, whence the pockets fill to the volumetric maximum. Rows of pockets are subsequently filled from the bottom up, until the entire system is at capacity. The system will remain at capacity until water is taken out, to used by the building’s residents or directed back to the municipal sewer system at a time when burden on the system is low. Linearly, the facade is like a curtain. The pockets are aligned on a rigid frame that is anchored at the top of a building’s face, and expands downward as the system fills with water. This is made possible through a spring system, which is activated by the mass of water entering the system. When it contains a “zero” or other low volume of water, it retracts towards the anchor point at the top of the building, exposing the building face.

PROMPT: PROPOSE A FEASIBLE GREEN SOLUTION FOR AN URGAN ISSUE IN DOWNTOWN BERKELEY, giving consideration to the Berkeley Climate Action Plan and SB 375. In order to achieve the 2020 zero waste goal outlined in the Berkeley Climate Action Plan and comply with SB 375 regulations, the rapidly growing downtown area must address the inefficiencies of composting and recycling within commercial businesses and multi-family residential units.
U SHATT CK
By 2035, downtown Berkeley will experience a population growth of 15,000 people, an additional 5,000 housing units, and 27 new acres developed in its surrounding area.
These development sites to the right are all potential sites for new, high-desity housing projects, though it is projected that growth in office space will out pace retail space.
FUTURE GROWTH 2005 2035 Population 104,000 119,000 Housing 45,000 50,000
Development sites: 27 acres (vacant lots, surface parking lots, 1 & 2 story buildings)
Growth: office space > retail

IF BERKELEY MATCHES SAN FRANCISCO’S DIVERSION RATE OF 78%, WE COULD AVOID NEARLY 44,000 MTCO2E PER YEAR ENOUGH TO ACCOUNT FOR 1/4 OF MASTER PLAN’S MID-RANGE GHG REDUCTION GOAL FOR 2020. DATA: Berkeley Climate Action Plan, 2009 LAND USE
Downtown Berkeley is largely composed of commercial and multi-family residential buildings.

SCOPE + STRATEGY
When approaching issues of waste and material consumption, we considered 1) Upstream-production and demand 2) Consumption-consumer behavior 3) Downstream-dealing with waste. Because the first two issues are difficult to address at the local level, we will focus on downstream waste management.

DATA | Berkeley solid waste plan CURRENT BEHAVIOR Only 45% of Berkeley residents recycle weekly. Further research shows that only 60% of residents in multi-family buildings even have access to recycling services. Only 31% of all waste from multi-family buildings is diverted (as opposed to 57% for single family residences). DATA | Berkeley Climate Action Plan 2009
18 PROPOSAL: WASTE STREAM REDESIGN TO CAPTURE MULTI-FAMILY, MIXED USE & SINGLE-US
Our proposal combines collection reform and commercial certification in order to achieve the 202 for residents in multi-family residences and commercial businesses to recycle and compost in thei back approach will provide access to a website for consumers to review their waste diversion hab
1) WASTE STREAM REDESIGN: MULTI-FAMILY & MIXED USE BUILDINGS
MULTI-UNIT BUILDINGS Each floor has its own chutes system that separates compost, recycling, and garbage. The below-ground level will be used for collection. An on the street collection system, as demonstrated in case studies in the Netherlands, this makes collection of separate streams in large buildings feasible.

20 zero waste goal. The collection technology will lie at the center of our designs, making it easier ir buildings and keep track of their waste habits through an online bill service. The customer feedbits. They will receive rebates on their refuse bills based on their diversion rates.
2) CUSTOMER FEEDBACK SYSTEM SMART BINS + SMART BILL Each bin has a bar code that new trucks will be equipped to scan. The bar code contains the customerâ€™s address, bin type, and the empty weight of each bin. Monthly statements include info about how much the customer is diverting and waste volume by type. COLLECTION TECHNOLOGY Refuse trucks are equipped with lifting arms which scan and weigh the Smart Bins, then wirelessly transmit this information to a database.
NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL DISTRICT ANALYSIS + MAPPING NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING SURVEY SAN FRANCISCO PLANNING DEPARTMENT WINTER 2011
METHOD | Survey land use proportions of commercial corridors to investigate whether NCD concentrations are below the threshold set in the General Plan for eating/drinking establishments. Create a procedure to measure land use concentrations & display findings. Gathered the districts’ data from online sources and parcel information system. Perform field research to verify data and document actual frontage measurements. Standardized data and internally audit Block Lot records using Access Software, then imported and geocoded data in ArcGIS. This procedure will be codified and used for all such future projects.
