In the spring of 2017, the Architectural Ecologies Lab team conducted a pilot public education ‘plug-in’ curriculum module with Skyline High School in Oakland, in which 85 public school students participated in ecological design exercises that built upon the Buoyant Ecologies research at CCA. This work occurred at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, a recreational area developed by the Port of Oakland as a public resource dedicated to environmental research and education.
