Title: Waterfront Discovery
Author: Towle, Mike
Abstract: Water possesses a fundamental energy that allows for a unique biodiversity of organisms to inhabit this planet. It has long been an overlooked resource on this Earth and for that reason I would like to use its inherent properties to create a functional as well as aesthetically pleasing solution to educating people on the true value of water. This thesis seeks to understand the benefits of landscape design along the waters edge and how successful design can push the boundaries of sustainable practices as well as increase the overall quality of life for any who visits the site regardless of age, sex, or religion. Water is in essence a finite and precious resource, and for this reason it becomes increasingly important that design along the waterfront accomodates a variety of uses from residential to commercial so that everyone be given an equal opportunity to benefit from the inward outward flow of the water itself.
