3B Studio w Lola Sheppard. Sept-Dec 2016
This studio asked for an economically and culturally inspiring and groundbreaking project of any kind anywhere in Newfoundland. We drew from the long history and culture of fishing in the province and extensively researched the customs and architecture. Fishing caused Newfoundand's colonization, fueled its cities, and shaped the vernacular architecture, yet today is only a minor industry. This project proposes a new aquaculture farm, marina, and culinary school to continue the heritage. By creating water infrastructure, employment, and a food source, we hope to promote a modern and sustainable community.
