Southwest Park: College Station, Texas

56City of College Station requested a park for college age and active adults.

The solution included small parking (relying on walkabilty of the surrounding area), exercise equipment, basketball courts, rock climbing wall, fields, play equipment for younger children, and covered areas.

In addition to activities, the park required extra safety measures because of the surrounding area. Open tree sight lines from the roads and over sized walkways for emergency vehicles to reach the exercise equipment and rock wall was very important.

Hanging, Self-watering, and Modular Planter

58LAND Construction Task.

 

Design a planter that can be inside or outside. The planter must be able to be moved by two people. It must be easily reproducible and shipped.

The solution was a module planter inspired by the chinese rain chains. The top module is a reservoir that hold over 3 gallons of water. Under each module is a valve that control the stream of water. The water drips from module to module creating specific ecological zones (based on the above valve opening). In the image, the top zone is a wetland, second is a temperate zone, and the bottom is a arid zone. The modules can be added or subtracted using the chain and hooks.
