alameda island

Alameda needs to become resilient to economic instability and a rising sea level. This thesis proposes a canal to manage the water levels, which connects industrial, commercial, residential, and recreational districts. To stabilize the economy, a network of vocational schools is strung along the canal, encouraging community circulation. By slicing the historic hangar at the waterline, and injecting the vocational school along the public circulation path bridging the canal, all three user types – public, distiller, and student – become engaged.
