Berkeley's Blighted Lot Helps Inspire

New, 2 comments

The blighted lot on the corner of Haste and Telegraph in Berkeley is a source of frustration for many, but a group of students see it as inspiration. Students at UC Berkeley's Department of Architecture "spent the summer working on bold and unlikely proposals for the Haste and Telegraph site," reports Berkeleyside. Students were encouraged to create proposals for an "Urban Think Tank." "The project is conceived of as an opportunity to investigate the relationship between public discourse, architecture, and ideology," said Professor Fields, a lecturer on the design faculty at Cal. You can see the renders and proposals by students (above: Jarrod Hicks' Urban Ecology Center) by heading over to Berkeleyside. [Berkeleyside]
