Title of Project: campGROUND(s)

Studio Instructor: Adam Marcus

—REPLACE TEXT—-Through the collaboration with The City of Fremont and the East Bay Regional Park System, the Northgate Neighbors have initiated a project that proposes a new connection to the Alameda Creek through the re-wilding of suburbia. The Northgate Neighbors have pooled their ADU rights in order to allow space for campGROUND(s), an interlocking wooden structure that allows for both the burrowing of domestic-recreational spaces and burrowing owl modules.  The artificial landscape grows out of the suburban backyard to accommodate hikers, campers, and day visitors via the connection to the Alameda Creek Trail at the rear of the site. This project explores how we can construct a natural environment while encouraging outdoor recreation localized in the suburban backyard

—REPLACE TEXT—- The Soft Landing is a multi-functional high-rise project that sits across Macarthur Park, Los Angeles. It connects itself with the existing underground Metro Station and the adjacent neighborhoods. It strives to provide visual softness through its formal language and coloration, social/economical flexibility through the transitional nature of the building programs, and hierarchical fluidity, which intends to eliminate the programmatic boundaries within the building.
