REEFS, POINTS AND PERCEPTIONS: AN ARCHITECTURAL CATALOGUE OF COASTAL STRATEGIES AND A DESIGN PROPOSAL FOR LAWRENCETOWN BEACH, NOVA SCOTIA
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis proposes coastal architecture interventions in Nova Scotia by focussing on the forces and elements that exist in unique combinations at the coast. Using surfing as a source of inspiration, these interventions mediate the relationship between natural world and the built environment. The combination of this proposed catalogue and in-depth site analysis results in design proposals for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. These proposals both capitalize on opportunities and address problems specific to coastal building.
