estuary edge : oakland community boathouse

the community boathouse constructs an articulated edge along the industrial estuary. the edge diagrams the process of bringing a boat to water—it lifts, shifts, and rotates down, expanding into the boathouse volume and collapsing into the edge again. the edge and the volume are discontinuous and mutually intrusive. 

a waffle of glulams deforms for programmatic specificity: in the changing rooms the waffle densifies to hold lockers and create privacy; along the docks the waffle widens so excavated glulam beams can shelve boats and oars. an adaptive, functional architectural tectonic.
