Located off the coast of Northern California, just west of Eureka and Humboldt Bay, it is the intention of mine to design a site specific research facility to primarily study oceanic activity. Responding to the planet’s current environmental conditions, I feel it necessary for solutions to manifest themselves within the realm of sustainable, as well as in an interest for future energy sources. The planet’s oceans hold one possible answer for this. By committing to a project that focuses on researching water at an extremely close proximity, it will also strive for the ability to be dependent on water for its own energy needs. Thus, the function of the structure will be of the highest expectation. Buildings make up the largest culprit of emitting carbon dioxide gases, but in addition to this, pollution of ground water and many others are directly related to my project.
