Some final thoughts


The main focus of the waterfront intervention is to emphasize and embrace the unique topography, and nestle the intervention sensitively into the rock formations which were uncovered on the site.


The main focus of the waterfront intervention is to emphasize and embrace the unique topography, and nestle the intervention sensitively into the rock formations which were uncovered on the site. The formal elements of the installation are oriented toward both the approach to the site and to views along the shore and out to the bay. Existing rock formations are integrated as ledge seating, and no concrete or other destructive, scarring materials were used. Accessibility was a primary concern for the project, in order to allow all members of the community to enjoy the platform together. The installation is also designed to lead up to and attach to a planned wooden boardwalk over-top of the existing rocky breakwater – to be built by the community in a later phase.
