Description

Oshkosh Wisconsin is historically known as an industrial city, but Oshkosh’s industrial past has left much of the riverfront property in environmental disrepair. The specific waterfront site I'm studying is heavily contaminated and in need of millions of dollars’ worth of dredging in order to make it even remotely worth developing on. After talking to the Oshkosh Urban Planner, Darryn Burich, a few things became apparent. The city is in desperate need of transforming the riverfront into a place to be and the ecological damage done to the site requires a much deeper understanding of the complex environmental and social issues before development begins. My research project, Oshkosh E.R. (Environmental Relief), revolves around understanding the historical, communal and environmental context of the site to design a proposal that effectively addresses these issues. The project will be presented through a series of visual and physical experiments that explore different forms of representation within the realm of architecture.
