Title: Water Resource Experiment Station
Author: Bredeson, Heather
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 structural system, furniture, and light fixtures are inspired by a monarch butterfly. The grass roof adds interest to the building when viewed from the bluff. Rainwater from the roof is collected into two reflecting pools near the building. Each room features beautiful views to the Missouri River or to the outdoor patio area.
