Sausalito, California

Student participants in SWA’s 2011 Summer Program were tasked with examining the problems and opportunities resulting from sea level rise along Sausalito’s waterfront, using a variety of viewpoints, scales and comparisons. Each week’s studio problem was directed by a principal representing one of SWA’s offices, supported by an associate and staff member from Sausalito. Outside speakers contributed technical insights. Each week concluded with a Friday afternoon presentation of student work, attended by a panel of experts or “jury”.
