This was a graduate student project by Jacob Boswell for Raffaella Fabiani Giannetto's LARCH 750 course, Autumn 2005.
"This project is an investigation into the built structures, both past and present, on the Whittier peninsula. The metaphor of the built structures as musculature was used as way to conceive of a new topography for the site, and a matrix - looking at the temporal, aesthetic, economic, and environmental impact of the built structures - was used as a way to generate that new topography. The design for a new civic space comes out of the process of working within the new topography as well as meshing that with current site conditions such as access, materials, water level, and flood zones. The design results in a new public park with an open air amphitheater, trails, and series of recreational pools, water treatment pools and retention ponds." ---- Jacob Boswell
