Waters edge: inhabiting the riverscape
MetadataShow full item record
Waters Edge began with the inspiration to be closer to water and progressed into exploring architecture within the inhabitation of the riverscape through the vehicle of an urban kayak station. A 1:1 scaled kayak was constructed to materialize the conceptual research and provide a means to understand the relationship between built form and water. The necessity of each line and material component in the kayak construction manifested itself into the making of the urban kayak station. Further research into the St. Johns rowing regatta and boat making enhanced the social aspect of revitalizing Winnipeg’s river culture. A series of architectural models and drawings were constructed to explore the conceptualizations of the research and multiple iterations of the project emerged. The research concludes with further exploration into the way we inhabit the riverscape.
