Course: LARCH 6910: Design 01: Site Matters
Term: Autumn 2015

Our site is located along the Scioto River, Franklinton, Columbus, Ohio. Our site is relatively long and narrowed. The Scioto Greenway goes through our site. On the one hand, we observe that the river has been seriously corroded by the river. The river lashes against the riverbank constantly, which contributes to the steep of the riverbank. The more erosion of the riverbank, the less space is provided for human activity. So we decide to focus on the problem of the erosion. We not only want to solve this problem, but also we hope to make use of it. On the other hand, we find that different locations have different degree of erosion. According to this situation, we decide to choose four locations where the erosion is most seriously as our key points. First, we use concrete to rebuild these areas. The concrete can effectively prevent the corrosion. Second, We design the spiral path which can create the hydrophilic space. What is more, in order to give visitors various experience, we design these four places with different theme. They are: Vertical Landscape, Dynamic Water, Interesting Pergola and Fishing and Relaxing. By this way, we can even celebrate this erosion. Through our design, we aim to achieve a creative dynamic management so that people can have a unique experience when they are visiting our site.
