LAR 6020

Sand Engine Fire Pit Section Model

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

LAR 7340, “Site Assembly,” taught by Zaneta Hong is developing large scale landscape detail models.  Nathan Burgess, 1st year M LAR student, decided to design this element in conjunction with his studio project. Studio LAR 6020 is working on designing a “sand engine” for Norfolk, VA: the longshore current gradually disperses sand onto the shore in order to thicken the shoreline. The professors also charged the students to design a human-scale element that would catch sand and remain after the sand has completed its dispersal. Pictured above is a section model of his Fire Pit over the ocean.
