This competition is held annually as a 4-day charette. The program for 2018 was a Marine Mammal Rehabilitation center in Humboldt County. The proposed design includes treatment pens on either side of a wild garden. The site is encapsulated with a large corrugated copper roof with a single elliptical oculus in the center. The orientation of the building attempts to highlight the natural qualities of the site to create a serene environment where visitor’s can contemplate the state of the world’s oceans. My entry was shortlisted to the top 4 nominees.
