Title: Water Resource Experiment Station
Author: Frey, Brittney
Abstract: Students in this studio were asked to design a Water Resource Experiment Station at a site on the bank of the Missouri River west of Linton and South of Bismarck, North Dakota. The students were given presentations by studio collaborators from the Biology Department and the Department of Civil Engineering concerning the use of constructed wetlands to clean waste water from the laboratory and rain water harvesting from the building’s exterior to add fresh water to the clean waste water for the use of the laboratory. Each design is approximately 20,000 square feet in area, has public parking and public toilets accessible from the exterior and is intended to be open to the public for their use after hours and on the weekends. The inspiration for this project came from the rolling hills that surround the site and the approach to the site. As the project evolved, it became one with the site, emerging out of the bluff so as not to disturb the existing site but harmonize with it. The public are invited to experience the research being conducted in the laboratory space as well as the apparatus room. All public circulation space provides views of the river and the bluffs. All of the private employee offices, break room, and small conference rooms have direct views of the outside while the mail room and large conference receive diffuse light. The connection from inside to outside is necessary because of the importance of the Missouri River to the Water Resource Experiment Station.
