Piezoelectric Energy Collection System

Site LED - Lighting Scheme

Vermont Shared Street: reengineered for cycle, pedestrian, community use

By installing piezoelectric plates under 200 meters of I-101, 1,600 kilowatts per hour could be gathered from the movement of the 240,000 cars using the highway daily. This energy could power 2,000 homes and is worth approximately $2.8 million per year. An LED piezoelectric billboard piques drivers’ interest as they pass. The freeway is engaged and used to create a positive community space and valuable resource.

Connection to Schools, Parks + Commerce The proposal rethinks pedestrian and cycle connections in communities within the Walnut Creek Watershed. A lvong NorthSouth greenway ties into regional trails and local parks, offering a bicycle route from downtown Walnut Creek to Martinez and the Suisun Bay in the North. Supplementing existing streets, and looking at railways, utility easements, and leftover spaces as opportunities, a network of pedestrian and cycle lanes create community connections. Linking commercial, educational, and residential areas was prioritized, resulting in two loop-like networks, with threads running across town ranging from 1/4 to 2 miles long to ensure the walkability and bikeability of the new green link.

Wurster hall is home to the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design. As the College seeks LEED certification, its landscape will be redvesigned to include site-appropriate, low-maintenance plantings, to integrate the existing mature redwoods, and relieve drainage problems along the building. In this design, swaths of massed planting sweep out from the building, aligned with the building’s distinctive columns, and become curvilinear as they continue across the site. Concrete pavers cut into the swaths, reinforcing the building’s strict geometry, and provide access into the forest and three DG seating areas with moveable furniture. Regional ecology is celebrated, with a plant palette of shade-loving California natives and others well-adapted to the Mediterranean climate. Bird and bee habitat is supported by the fruit and flowers of the plant palette, and fully planting the slope should ameliorate drainage issues while promoting interception and infiltration.

In 2002 AB

you decide what. I care about energy that is produced locally, within my community.

I care about my energy being as green as possible.

I care about energy that is affordable, and stably priced.

your CCA obtains it. My CCA buys the electricity my community wants.

PG&E delivers it. PG&E still delivers, bills and maintains my electricity service.

through existing power lines.

117 was passed in

California, making it possible for communities to purchase the type of energy they want, to be distributed

Be it green, cost-effective, or locally based, your community decides the electricty that it is bowered by.

What is Community Choice Aggregation?

high flow The modeling exercise was an experiment in channel interventions and water flow patterns. Step one: create a clay model of an existing drop structure where Walnut Creek transitions from a rectangular concrete box channel to a trapezoidal constructed earth channel. The existing condition was tested in a water bath, using dye to track the water and analyze velocity and flow. Then, a series of interventions were introduced and carefully recorded. The interventions were intended to slow the creek and offer another layer of social or ecological function to the context. My interventions simulated energy generation, a salmon ladder, an amphitheater for people to watch rapids, and creation of interstitial areas and increased riparian vegetation.

Highlighting Shadow

An open lookout point was used as a canvas to measure and trace the movement of the sun and shadows as they were cast across the empty space. Morning shadows were measured in intervals 15 minutes apart, on 2 separate occasions separated by 2 weeks. Based on observations, the location of the shadows in the third week was projected, drawn, and sculpted on the ground. The constancy of unnoticed atmospheric and environmental change was traced and revealed for the presentation.
