Students Present Architectural Designs for Bath Waterfront

Story posted May 06, 2010

With a 19th-century freight shed on the Bath waterfront as their canvas, three students in Adjunct Lecturer Wiebke Theodore's independent study have created architectural design proposals that could serve as potential preservation strategies for the 151-foot structure that has sat vacant for years.

This semester, Evan Farley '11, Niko Kubota '10, and Cole Merrick '11 have been working with Theodore in partnership with the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust to develop design proposals in response to the City of Bath's comprehensive and climate action plans.

Their proposals were presented May 5, 2010, at the Winter Street Center in Bath, in hopes of starting a community-wide conversation about the building's future.

The designs incorporate public waterfront access, renewable energy, gardens, bike commuter parking, local foods distribution and historic preservation strategies.
