Section Perspective A-A

The goal of this project is to renovate this facility, situated on a flood zone, by creating a research/testing complex and attract potential EV companies to come and test their vehicles, as well as preserving the wetland habitat. My concept is to create a balanced habitat across the site, and bridge people of Portland to the racing community. By preserving and restoring wetlands at the south end of the side, create landmark for easy way finding, and coming up with a good zoning organization of the site, I am able to develope a site that congregates most human intervention at the east end, near the entrance, and slowly transits to natural habitats out in the west end, moving from developed to less developed. In order to reduce the carbon emission of vehicles, more trees would be planted on the site, particularly at the entrance and also toward the west end on the track. There will also be a cherry blossom park in the center of the track to attract people who is only interested in sight seeing. These trees will also serve as a natural corridor to connect the existing wetland project at the north end of the site down to the Columbia Slough. The buildings on the site will be built using materials that can be sustainable to the condition of the environment. These materials may not be recyclable materials, but the main focus is to bring the sustainability and the survival rate of a building up in case there’s a flood or other natural water disasters.
