This group of students worked with a contaminated reclamation site that houses an oil tank farm approaching the end of its useful life. Located adjacent to the central business district, a contemporary art gallery in a waterfront park was conceived as a site of playful encounter and restorative renewal. Artificial reconstruction of the site incorporates an interactive and responsive surface that leads visitors to the gallery partially clad in a grassy sward.
