Using fog collecting facade technology, this project responds to the ongoing drought crisis in the State of California. Based in the Nob Hill district of San Francisco, the project challenges students to design a mid-rise mixed-use complex with housing units in addition to fog collecting technology and conceptual building techniques to harness the daily fog that occurs as a way to eliminate dependency on the greater California water supply.
THE FINAL structure IS COMPRISED OF MIXED USE HIGH-END residential AND AN ARTIST RESIDENCY. THE BUILDING CONTAINS APARTMENTS, LOBBY, ARTIST STUDIOS, GALLERIES, WORKSPACES, PARKING, CAFE, BALCONY, AND EXPERIENTIAL FOG COLLECTOR DECK. THE BUILDING FORM IS REACTIONARY TO FOG AND AIMS TO DIRECT FOG FOR OPTIMAL GREY WATER COLLECTION.
