“Sustainability is not an option for the individual anymore; it is a must for everyone. Our life will have more strict critical roles for our daily habits in the future […] My proposal for a futuristic residential building will focus on the maximum efficient use of the space and energy by utilizing technology, architecture, and human habits.”

As sea levels rise, a big concern in Boston is the Seaport District because it is constantly susceptible to damage by flooding. This project is an exploration in waterfront solutions.

Degree Project by Alinsan Esteves, b.arch, fall 2016

The intention of this design intervention is to meet the needs of the changing generation and education. This project starts to build around dichotomies by finding the spacial relationships between work and rest, private and public, and learning and fabricating.

THESIS by NICOLE PEARSON, M.arch, fall 2017

This project explores architecture as an index of time. It seeks to create a living community through the link between the built environment, nature, and our understanding of the passage of time.

C2 Studio by pedro lucas, b.arch, 

This project reinterprets the design process as an interplay between conformity and nonconformity in order to achieve a balanced system in developing new urban areas.

thesis by britt ambruson, m.arch, fall 2017

My curiosity in the urban waterfront was sparked my first week of school at Boston Architectural College when we visited Quincy Market. As a native Massachusetts resident, I had been there countless times before, but this time was different. Someone nonchalantly mentioned that the land I had been standing on once had been the ocean and I stopped in my tracks. It seemed to me that this was so fascinating -that we had this type of power to manipulate our waterfront, and no one stopped to notice it. I tried to fathom a way to understand -to experience this change, and I fell short.
Fast forward to a studio two years later, where I was studying the relationship between sea level rise , planning, landscape, and architecture. Not only have I learned that Boston has this rich relationship with its coast, but Boston also stands likely to become greatly affected by sea level rise. It was then that I started to really think about how we could design to understand our waterfront and work with it, not against it.
When first deciding to take this project on, it had an air of resiliency to it. How can we talk about sea level rise and not talk about resiliency? The project needed to take another route however - one that is connected to the past, to today, and to one hundred years from now; the project needed to investigate experience. This is not another project about sea level rise. What it is, however, is a project that asks how we can learn to generate design that embraces our coastline, and enrich the relationship that we have to it.
