SHELTER: Hawk Hill Design Challenge
Rolling Registration: Opens April 1, 2013
Program Period: Friday, May 31 - Friday, June 7, 2013
Lodging available; meals included
Co-presented with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy
Artist Nathan Lynch (AIR '11)--alongside some of the Bay Area's top designers, architects, educators, and conservationists--leads this interactive workshop to design a native species-sensitive shelter for the human visitors to Hawk Hill, the Marin Headlands' beloved Golden Gate Bridge overlook. The resulting proposal will be considered by the National Parks Service for potential implementation.
Heavily visited by hikers, bikers, tourists, bird-watchers and fire-works viewers, Hawk Hill is also an important part of the non-human ecosystem as the primary West Coast migration path for both raptors and the endangered Mission Blue Butterfly. In a recent effort to restore this habitat, invasive Monterey Cypress trees were removed, along with the shelter they provided from the hilltop's often harsh climate.
Design a shelter that is practical to the local climate, facilitates current recreational and interpretive programming, and does not adversely affect the delicate ecological conditions.
